CREWE Alexandra boss Steve Davis was happy with his side’s FA Cup draw as they were given a trip to Cheltenham Town.

The sides, both in League Two, were drawn together on Monday night and will meet at Whaddon Road on Saturday, November 5.

Davis has said the draw represents a good opportunity to progress in the prestigious competition.

“I think it is a decent draw. The first round of the FA Cup without the Premier League and Championship clubs involved always gives you a chance to get through,” he said.

“We have been drawn against a team that is in our league, so we will know about them.

“We have lost twice this season, and one of those occurred at Cheltenham so we will be looking to avenge that result and hopefully progress to the second round.

“We will want to put that right when the fixture comes around. We will treat it exactly the same as any other game but first up for us is Yeovil Town.

“I’ve said for many years that we want to do well in the FA Cup, for ourselves, the club and the supporters.

“I would like a decent run it because everyone involved in football loves the FA Cup.”

Meanwhile, in Crewe’s quest for promotion back to League One, they picked up their third consecutive 1-1 draw at Notts County last Saturday.

A late equaliser from on-loan Chelsea winger Alex Kiwomya denied the hosts the chance to overtake Crewe in the League Two table.

Davis, however, wants to see more wins from his side to keep in tact with teams occupying play-off spots ahead of Saturday’s home game against Yeovil Town, kick off 3pm.

“It was good to come back after going a goal down again, especially with us having a goal not given when it should have been,” he said.

“It was good not to get beaten and another point keeps us ticking over, but we need to get three points as often as possible.

“If we had been able to convert some of those draws into wins, we would be in a much better position.”

The Alex boss believes putting a run of results together is key in a such a tight league.

“It is just about finding that consistency because I don’t think there is an outstanding team who is going to run away with it,” he said.

“There is not that much between the teams, so those who are the most consistent will be promoted.

“Plymouth have been the most consistent team and that is why they are top of the league. I am sure they will have a period when they suffer some losses like we all will.

“It is about how you cope with that. It is the nature of the league and we just have to make sure we are right in there.”
