Keeper warns colleagues

Goalkeeper Steve Phillips has told his underperforming colleagues it's time to stand up and be counted following Crewe Alexandra's disappointing start to the season.

"To go down with a whimper like we did was nothing short of scandalous" - Steve Phillips
The Alex have managed just one win in seven attempts in the league so far and currently sit in eighteenth and only a single-point above the relegation places.

"We'll see who comes to the top and see who sinks. I certainly won't sink," Phillips told BBC Radio Stoke. "I'm a fighter and I'm hoping there's a few behind me who are with us. If you don't you're going to get relegated."

Struggling Crewe went down again at the weekend after conceding three second-half goals to Walsall at Gresty Road.

"To go down with a whimper like we did was nothing short of scandalous," Phillips added. "You need fighters in your team. That was by no means good enough."
