Crewe Alexandra were defeated 1-0 in the recent match against Stevenage. The result was a major disappointment for manager Steve Davis after he admitted that his team created a lot of opportunities without taking any of them. This is a situation where Crewe Alexandra must convert any of the half chances they get. This is because they already find themselves in the midst of a relegation battle and it could only get worse if results do not come in the near future. Crewe managed to go down to an early goal from Francois Zoko.
Even though they were able to mount a serious challenge on Stevenage’s defence, they were unable to get the crucial equaliser. As the time wore on, it looked like Stevenage would comfortably defend the lead and secure victory. Davis has acknowledged that the result was a serious setback for the team, but he is confident of getting the club back on track in terms of victories. He will have only a few matches to get Crewe back on form. After 34 matches having been played by the club, they have taken just 35 points and are currently occupying the final relegation spots.
However, they are in the drop zone only on the basis of goal difference.
“I’m amazed we didn’t get a goal to be honest. If you won a game on the number of chances created we’d have been laughing. I think they had one shot on target but we couldn’t get the breakthrough. We played well but come away with nothing. The performance was pleasing, the result wasn’t. We move on. We were sloppy for the goal but apart from that we defended well and we deserved something,” said Davis.
Crewe Alexandra take on Swindon Town in the next match and it will be followed by a clash against promotion chasing Peterborough United.
