Alex Morris says he will expose his players to different scenarios and situations during the pre-season to alter their mindset.
The Alex boss, who succeeded David Artell, with four games of the campaign remaining, has to rebuild a winning mentality after Crewe Alexandra endured one of their worst seasons in the modern era.
The Railwaymen won just 7 of their 46 league games and relegation was confirmed with a 2-0 loss at fellow strugglers Doncaster Rovers. Morris ended a run of eight straight defeats with an impressive 3-1 win over Wimbledon and drew with Ipswich Town in those four final games.
Morris told the club’s official website: “We have worked with the players in the four games and I think there was a shift in confidence and their mindset.
“Losing had become a habit but that changed quickly and they went into games expecting to get a result rather than just hoping. That has to continue.
“We will expose to the players to situations in the pre-season to help with their mentality and rebuilding a winning mindset.
“They will be organised and structured with the football and they will be coached well because that is what we pride ourselves on here, but we know we have to work on those other areas.
He added: “They need to become mentally stronger and more robust. We know the areas where we have to be better and have strategies in place that will help with that.”
