Gradi lauds his entertainers

Published Add your comment

Dario Gradi has hailed his Crewe side's capacity to entertain after another thrilling contest.

The Railwaymen came from behind to snatch a 3-3 draw against Torquay, following a 4-2 loss at Macclesfield and a 5-5 draw with Chesterfield in recent weeks, and the manager understandably questioned his team's latest defensive efforts.

"I'm going to have to have a word with the chairman about putting the prices up as the entertainment value as certainly gone up here,'' said Gradi

"We could have nicked it at the end but all things considered we are satisfied with a point. We did well and played some decent football but we made a lot of silly mistakes.

"We don't want to be conceding at corners and set plays like that and we are going to have to do some work on that."

Torquay manager Paul Buckle enjoyed the game as a spectacle despite being critical of the playing surface at Gresty Road.

"What an entertaining game that was," he said. "Once again we proved real value for money.

"There were chances at both ends and there was no holding back from either team.

"But I was very disappointed with the pitch - it certainly wasn't fit for League Two.

"We couldn't play our usual passing game and in places it looked like a plough field."
