Davis realistic on play-offs

Crewe manager Steve Davis admits his side have a "very outside chance" of making the play-offs following Tuesday's 2-0 defeat at Crawley.

Two late goals from striker Jamie Proctor brought an end to Alex's four-match unbeaten run and Davis says it will be tough to achieve now with only nine games remaining.

He said: "It does us no favours. We needed to win this game but for both teams it will be a tall order. Crawley are only two points ahead of us."

The match was quickly re-scheduled after last Saturday's postponement and Davis said the preparations were not ideal.

He added: "We had a long wait for this game. At the end of the game we looked tired and leggy."

Davis was disappointed that Crewe did not look potent enough upfront and admitted the absence of top scorer Mathias Pogba, who has been on international duty with Guinea, was keenly felt.

He said: "Pogba is a big miss as he always looks likely to score and creates opportunities with his presence."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
