Long: ‘We fear nobody’

7 September 2023

Christopher Long says Crewe Alexandra fear nobody – home or away – in League Two.

The striker, who is preparing for Saturday’s trip to Forest Green Rovers, believes The Railwaymen have every reason to be confident – regardless of who they line up against.

Now he has targeted the Club’s first three-point haul of the season at The New Lawn.

Long, who has scored twice this term, said: “Every team in this league is going to be tough.

“But we’ve got really good, young players who are full of energy so there’s no reason we can’t do what we did to MK Dons in the second half to any team this season.

“I think we’ve played okay away from home – even at Bradford. So we want to get three points wherever we are playing.”

Long, a former Everton and Burnley man is now in his third season with Crewe. He was top-scorer with 10 goals in a difficult 2021-22 campaign and missed most of 2022-23 due to injury.

Now he is aiming to help fire the Alex back to the third tier.

Long added: “I didn’t really kick a ball last season so I’ve got unfinished business here and I need to keep scoring goals.

“I’m my own biggest critic, and my mother is too when I don’t score! But I know for a fact I’ll score goals in this league,.

"I just have to keep my head down, work hard, and take my chances when they come along, and to be fair I think I’ve done that since I’ve been at Crewe.

“My main goal is to help get Crewe promoted. I came here to Crewe in League One and I’d like to take them back there.”
