Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis praised the spirit of his side following their 1-0 home defeat to Sheffield United.

“They didn’t really open us up” – Steve Davis

Defender George Ray was sent-off as the Railwaymen’s three-game winning run
was brought to an end by Stefan Scougall midway through the second-half. Goalkeeper Ben Garratt also saved a
Jose Baxter penalty.

“We showed a lot of spirit and worked hard to try and get something from the game,” Davis told Crewe’s official website. “I never thought we controlled the game, I thought they controlled periods of the game more than we did, without really creating too many chances. They didn’t really open us up.”

Meanwhile, midfielder Brad Inman was sent to hospital with concussion after a clash of heads forced him off on a stretcher.

“Brad has concussion and has been sent to hospital for a check-up. He caught the lad with his head and his neck has jerked back and he went down,” Davis added. “He wasn’t cut. The clash has caused some disruption with his neck and we will know a bit more in the next 24 hours.”
