New ball game warns Davis

Steve Davis has warned that Crewe Alexandra's play-off semi-final victory against Southend United last season will have absolutely no bearing on their Johnstone's Paint Trophy final meeting on Sunday.

"I think we are a tighter unit than last season, without having that individual brilliance" - Steve Davis
Davis will of course be lining up against a totally different manager after former Hull City and Preston North End boss Phil Brown recently replaced Paul Sturrock at Roots Hall.

Last season Alex defeated Southend 3-2 on aggregate before then overcoming Cheltenham Town in their Wembley play-off final in May.

"Southend are a different team with a different manager from last season's play-offs," Davis warned Crewe's official website. "We are different as well, with five new players and more coming in on loan. I think we are a tighter unit than last season, without having that individual brilliance that a Nick [Powell] can bring you.

"It is ironic that we are facing Southend in the final, after what happened in the play-offs last season," he continued. "They have players there who were involved in those games and I'm sure their supporters haven't forgotten. They will want a bit of revenge for last season and that just gives an extra edge to the game."
