'If It's Football, It's Vital'

It was a spirited performance

Another Championship side bites the dust in the Carling Cup at Gresty Road and Steve Holland is pleased.

With the team starting to take shape and Anthony Elding banging in the goals, the pressure is slowly being lifted off Steve Holland's shoulders but the 'first team coach' was quick to praise the team for tonight's victory.

Goals from Elding and Moore were enough to make Brian Wilson's goal on the 79th minute worthless but Holland thinks it could have been more had Pope and Grant stuck their chances away.

Speaking to crewealex.net, Holland said:'We had spells where we had to defend but we probably had the three or four best chances of the game, two of which we took. Joel Grant and Tom Pope both had the goalkeeper to beat and missed, but we can be pleased with the overall performance.

'The effort was good, and secondly the concentration as much as anything. Bristol played very well and have a good way of playing. We really only had a day to work on it, and we used that to work on our shape, and to restrict their room.

'The players deserve a lot of credit for tonight, it was a spirited performance with a fair amount of quality and thought as well.'

Holland now has the job of preparing the team for a trip down to Hereford. The League One new comers are currently propping up the table following a 6-1 thrashing at Bristol Rovers on Saturday.
