STEVE Davis believes there is more to come from new Alex hero Lauri Dalla Valle.

The 21-year-old Finnish striker made an instant impact, finding the net just five minutes into his debut in Tuesday’s fine 2-0 win at Doncaster.

Premiership Fulham allowed Crewe to take a look at the former Liverpool forward for a week in training before deciding on a short-term loan move.

Ready for Saturday’s home debut against Colchester, Dalla Valle will be looking to build on a great start to his one-month stint.

“I’d seen enough to know he will make a big difference and I said to Neil (Baker) we should get him in time for Doncaster,” explained Davis.

“The early goal made a difference to us because we’ve struggled to score first.

“It was a great pass from Chucks (Aneke) and a great finish from Lauri.

“He can make those intelligent little runs in behind and he occupies the centre-backs with his movement.

“He didn’t give them a minute’s peace.

“That’s what we saw in him and why we decided to bring him in.

“We watched him play that role for Fulham with one-off and it suited us with Chucks.”

Along with Dalla Valle, midfielder Abdul Osman also inspired Crewe to their best result of the season so far against in-form Rovers.

Mathias Pogba (71) headed home substitute Michael West’s corner to wrap up three well-deserved points.

“Every one of them was terrific,” continued Davis.

“I think we have a talented group of players and I told them they have to go to places like that and show it.

“The second goal was a set play and it’s nice to see the work we do pay off.

“We’ve been trying to get Pogs into that position and he’s a big lad who can do that.”

West replaced Byron Moore at half-time who looks set to miss out on the Colchester clash with a foot injury.

However Max Clayton, who has been out with a groin injury could return to the bench as 14th-placed Crewe look to leap-front their opponents in League One.

“It is about having that belief and showing some consistency,” added Davis.

Crewe will entertain either Burton or Altrincham in the FA Cup Second Round after last Saturday’s 4-1 thrashing of Wycombe.

“We have another home draw and that always helps,” concluded the boss.

“We’ll be ready for it and it will be tough whoever wins.”
