STEVE Davis insists his focus is Crewe Alexandra as speculation continues to link him with Championship club Burnley.

The 47-year-old is among the favourites for the job with Paul Ince, Michael Appleton, Owen Coyle and Mick McCarthy also in contention.

Davis is in negotiations for a new contract at Crewe, but is currently only on a rolling three-month deal and would be popular with Burnley fans after playing 147 games at Turf Moor.

Having led the Alex to promotion inside his first 12 months, his departure would come as a massive blow as the club look to progress in League One.

“I don’t really take much notice,” said Davis.

“We’ve had some success which doesn’t go unnoticed by chairmen but obviously I can’t control speculation.

“I’m employed here and enjoy my job, so I’m only focused on what I’m doing at the moment.”

Byron Moore grabbed both goals as Crewe fought back to beat Swindon 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Raffaele De Vita’s bullet header put the visitors ahead on 25 minutes before Moore poached his first of the season.

And the forward made it two just before the break, chipping over keeper Wes Foderingham from an acute angle.

The Alex sat back and soaked up plenty of pressure en-route to a vital win that lifts them to 16th in the table.

“I’ve been screaming for Byron to get in at the back post and he’s finally achieved it,” continued Davis.

“They were two great goals and I’m pleased for him to get going.

“Byron scored 11 goals in League Two last season and he’s got to get double figures again if he wants to play higher.

“That should be with us, he should be getting the goals to take us where we want to be.

“We don’t want to be languishing or in mid-table, we want to be getting up higher.”

Abdul Osman will be a doubt for Saturday’s home clash against Yeovil after he was forced off at half time with another ankle injury.

Max Clayton was rested on Tuesday with a slight groin strain and should be back on the bench as Crewe target another victory.

“You have to work hard for points in this division and we need to get going now,” added Davis.

Meanwhile Crewe entertain League Two Wycombe in the first round of the FA Cup next Saturday, November 3.
