Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis is taking his side to Wembley again after surviving a late double-scare in their Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Northern Area final second-leg against Coventry City at Gresty Road.

The visitors were already trailing by three goals from the first game earlier this month but dramatically struck twice during injury-time through a Mark Ellis own-goal and Leon Clarke.
However, their sudden comeback was to prove too late as the Alex still went through 3-2 on aggregate to meet Southend United in the final of the competition at Wembley on 7th April.
“I can’t believe it, it was an amazing night full of mixed emotions,” Davis told BBC Radio Stoke. “We were in full control of the game, they got a goal from nothing, and that gave them a lifeline.
“It’s about getting through and that’s what we’ve done so I’m pleased,” he added. “We are not going to win the FA Cup or League Cup and this is a chance to get to Wembley and we’ve done that.”
