Crewe must bounce back from bad February, says Gradi

Manager Dario Gradi has told his Crewe Alexandra team to forget about their poor run of results in February and look to improve their form in March.

The Alex were third at the end of January but have picked up just one point from their last six matches.

The 69-year-old told BBC Radio Stoke: "We're not hopeless but we're having a hard time at the moment.

"We were happy with the good times in January and now we've got to look to have a good March."

Crewe had won five of their previous seven matches before the start of February to move into the automatic promotion places, earning Gradi the Manager of the Month award for League Two in January.

However, a 6-2 defeat at Northampton started a run of six games without a win, culminating with a 3-1 loss at Bury, a result that leaves the Alex 12th in the table.

Crewe have seven matches scheduled for March, the first of them at home to struggling Burton Albion on Saturday.
