Crewe 1-1 Shrewsbury: Davis Unhappy At Defensive Errors

Steve Davis slammed his defence for a succession of errors after Crewe let a first half lead slip to draw 1-1 with Shrewsbury.

Tom Hitchcock’s second goal in as many games had handed Alex the lead on 19-minutes, as he stooped low to head home from the six yard line after a brilliant cross from Mesca Bangna had been nodded down by Chuks Aneke.

But a second half equaliser for Jon Taylor, his first since September, forced the hosts to share the spoils, with the winger running on to a hopeful through ball before blasting into the net.

And Davis said: “I was disappointed with the goal.

“It was just a long punt down the middle, and I think Mark Ellis, for whatever reason, ducked under it.

“Then Harry Davis was in between Matt Tootle and he wasn’t sure that the winger had made that run.

“Then I thought Ben Garratt could have stopped it.

“So I’m looking at four mistakes.”

The equaliser was no more than the visitors deserved after they pummelled the Crewe goal at the end of the first half.

But Luke Summerfield’s shooting was wayward, whilst Taylor had earlier forced a superb save from point blank range from ‘keeper Garratt.

And after equalising, they should have sneaked the points late on, only for Tom Eaves to feebly tap straight at Garratt.

Visiting boss Graham Turner was happy with the point, but is wants to see more of the same from Taylor.

“When you’ve come away from home and you’re a goal down, to come back and take away a point is reasonable,” he said.

“It was a cracking finish, but he can make those runs.

“He’s bright enough to pick out the right time to go and he’s bright enough to finish them off. I want to see more of that.”
