Alex Morris: 'We're working towards where we want to be'

25 October 2022

Alex Morris believes his side are progressing following Crewe Alexandra's 1-1 draw away to AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday evening.

Rio Adebisi's equaliser on 62 minutes was enough to secure a point for the Railwaymen on the road, having cancelled out Ayoub Assal's opener for the hosts.

Morris was pleased with his side's reaction in the second half, given the difficulty of the task of playing away from home against a stern Wimbledon side.

He said: "I was pleased with the second half performance, tough place to come (Plough Lane) and they should be higher in the league than where they currently are.

"We responded in the second half, and under normal circumstances coming down on a Tuesday night, under the lights having been behind, getting a draw is usually something you're happy with. But we're still drawing too many games, and it's frustrating for us and the supporters."

The gaffer reiterated that his side are a work in progress and acknowledged that wins are a must but he believes that the team are on the right track.

He added: "With the group that won promotion a few years ago, there were so many moments in the two, three years prior to that like today where soft goals and consistency fluctuating from one half to the next let alone one game to the next.

"We're working towards where we want to be, but we need some wins along the way to try and put the icing on the cake to give us the lift that we are heading in the right direction."

Arthur Okonkwo was essential in Crewe earning a point, with the Arsenal loanee saving a penalty once more, following on from his spot-kick stop on Saturday afternoon.

Morris added: "He's got a huge stature hasn't he when he's in that goal? It must be quite intimidating for anybody standing over a spot kick and so it has proved with two good forwards.

"Arthur did terrifically well to save a point at that moment, we thought that was going to help us to go on and win the game as a result of saving that penalty. He's getting better and better."
