Crewe: Steve Davis wants Bryon Moore to reach double figures

Byron Moore

Crewe Alexandra boss Steve Davis has called on his forward Byron Moore to reach double figures this campaign.

Moore, who scored 10 last term for Crewe, scored his first two goals this term in the 2-1 victory over Swindon.

Davis told BBC Radio Stoke: "[Moore should] score double figures in League One if he's got aspirations of playing higher.

"But that should be with us, he should be scoring goals to take us where we want to be."

Following victory, Crewe moved up to 16th in League One, but Davis has loftier ambitions than their current position in the table.

"We don't want to be languishing or in mid-table," he said. "We want to be pushing higher up the league.

"And with the help of his goals we should be able to achieve that.

"We rely a lot on Max [Clayton] of course. But we can't rely on an 18-year-old.

"The goals need to be spread out, but I'm delighted for Byron as he's shown us what he can do."
