Everall grounded as winning run sees Crewe FC climb to the top
A FIFTH successive Cheshire League win propelled Crewe FC to the top of Division One on Saturday, but boss Carl Everall believes his side are yet to reach their potential.
Crewe saw off lowly Denton to maintain a winning streak that began with the scalp of reigning champions Knutsford at the beginning of September.
However, despite scoring 13 times and only conceding three goals in that time, Everall insists his squad are not getting carried away with their current league position.
“Despite the win and taking top spot ahead of Knutsford, I feel there's still more to come and we are yet to hit the standard we set in pre season,” he explained.
“The lads came of the pitch disappointed with a 4-1 away win, which shows their self-expectations and belief in what the team can achieve.
“It's also key we don't dwell too much on the present league position, it's the final one we’re working towards.”
But the boss was pleased with his side’s professional approach to putting away a Denton outfit who are yet to record a league point.
“However, it was a tough place to go in horrible weather conditions so credit to the lads,” he added. “They got the job done in convincing style.”
Crewe turn their attention to the Cheshire Amateur Cup on Saturday where they host Moore United, a team sitting 11th in Division Two.
And with Crewe’s reserves flying high in the Crewe and District Combined Division, they sit one point clear of Cuddington at the top, Everall will be looking to utilise his squad’s strength-in-depth for the cup clash.
“The squad will be rotated again for this week’s Cheshire Cup tie,” he said.
“It’s a chance to give lads a rest and more importantly give others a chance to impose themselves.”
Crewe FC play Moore United on Saturday, 2pm kick off at the Cumberland Arena.
