Crewe Alexandra slumped
to another loss at home after being hammered 4-0 by Tranmere Rovers in the
National League U19 Alliance.
The Alex continued in
their search for their first win of the season, as a brace from Tyreek helped
to extend the home side’s losing run to five games.
It was a slow start by
Tranmere in the first 15 minutes, but the visitors soon stepped up their game
and went in at half time 2-0 up and looking good value for it.
Crewe Alex showed their
lack of match time this season on the back of a two week break and, whilst they
controlled a lot of the ball, the second half followed the same path as the
first as the home side conceded two more goals.
Despite them obviously
missing their strong defenders, Crewe still came away disappointed with the
result where they controlled the tempo up until the last 20 minutes where
Tranmere stepped up a gear and saw out the game.
Head Coach Ray Walker spoke after the game and admitted that on reflection, the
Tranmere side deserved all three points after Crewe failed to make the most of
their possession in the face of the visitor’s ‘intensity’.
