Crewe 1-2 Port Vale: Davis Slaughters Lazy Players

Steve Davis slaughtered the lazy players who he left out of Crewe’s squad in a scathing rant following this 2-1 defeat to bitter rivals Port Vale.

Anthony Grant and Brad Inman were both dropped from the squad for what the Crewe boss described as a bad attitudes.

And as Alex extended their winless run to seven, Davis insisted he won’t hesitate in selling the bad influences he has at the club.
“You can see there were a couple of players eliminated today, through sheer lack of effort and attitude,” he said.“Everyone out there today gave everything they’ve got.

“Some players haven’t been doing that and I don’t want those players at the club.

“They’ve got to work a lot harder for the team and show that they’re part of the club.

“It’s taken me a little while to sort out the group and I’m still sorting it out.”

Crewe actually took the lead in this bitter local derby through a stunning strike from on-loan Manchester City midfielder George Evans’ dipping volley.

But the goal stirred Port Vale into life, and they equalised just before the break when Rob Taylor squeezed home his first goal in over two years.

After half-time, both teams pushed for a winner, with Byron Moore coming close for the hosts, whilst Doug Loft was denied at the other end.

But it was the visitors who would snatch the points as Jennison Myrie-Williams drifted in to prod home unmarked at the back post late on.

And whilst Davis continues to root out Crewe’s bad apples, Vale midfielder Anthony Griffith was full of praise for the attitude of his teammates.

“It was a good shift by the lads and the manager got his tactics and team right,” he said.

“We showed character and strength.

“The atmosphere in the camp is good.

“There’s not a bad apple, we all get on with each other and there’s a lot of jokers which helps.”
