Nevitt: ‘I know what I'm capable of'

18 September 2023

Elliott Nevitt feels he is starting to prove a point after scoring his fourth of the season on Saturday.

The striker joined Crewe Alexandra from Tranmere Rovers in January but initially struggled in front of goal.

Nevitt had to wait until his 25th appearance for the club to open his account – but now the goals are flowing.

His 101st minute equaliser of Saturday’s 2-2 draw at AFC Wimbledon took his tally to four in the last seven games and he now leads the club’s scoring stakes.

Nevitt said: “I am extremely happy because last year wasn’t good enough for me.

“I know how good I am and what I can do and I felt like I had a point to prove this year.

“The fans stuck with me when I wasn’t scoring goals so it felt like I deserved to score for them (at Wimbledon). I’m just glad I could help send them home at least half-happy.”

It was the fourth time The Railwaymen have recovered from 2-0 down to get a result this season, and the sixth time in total they have battled from behind.

While Nevitt admits Crewe must stop putting themselves in that position, he says they will never give up.

Nevitt added: “We stuck with it to the end. We have got a fit team and we will run all day. We all work hard for each other and it doesn’t matter how long the games are - we believe we are the fitter side.

“It shows how good we are in the second half of games when we come back and put it on teams, and how we fight till the end.

“The performance wasn’t the best and the first half of games has been slow for us, but we showed what we can do in the second half.  The fans were still cheering us on.”
