Skipper Luke Murphy wants his Crewe Alexandra side to bounce straight back from their disappointing weekend defeat when visiting Sheffield United this evening.

"We will all have to play at our capacity to get something" - Luke Murphy
The Alex suffered a first defeat in four games at the Greenhous Meadow to halt their recent progress. Next they come up against one of the promotion favourites and a side which completed a convincing 4-1 win over fellow challengers Stevenage at the weekend.

"The Shrewsbury result was very disappointing for everyone after what has been three really good results and performances from us," Murphy told Crewe's official website. "The confidence was high going into the game at the weekend, but it wasn't to be for us. It was that first half performance again.

"We now have a difficult game at Sheffield United, who have been one of the most consistent teams in the league," he warned. "We will all have to play at our capacity to get something, but we did that at Doncaster and ended up winning the game, so we will be looking to repeat that level of performance again."
