Davis asks for positive support

Crewe manager Steve Davis has called on the Gresty Road faithful to help inspire his side's late promotion push.
Last weekend's see-saw 4-3 triumph at Gillingham means the Railwaymen are three points shy of the top seven in League Two with 10 games remaining.
Six of those games are at home, starting with Swindon's visit on Saturday, and Davis believes positive home backing could prove decisive.
"We've got six at home and four away so I'm really hoping that the supporters get behind us for the six home games because that could make all the difference," he said.
"They're going to be important to us, the fans. They've been brilliant away, but at home they're a bit apprehensive. So I want them to be more positive and really get behind us.
"That makes a hell of a difference, it really does, if the crowd are up and getting the players up, particularly in games where you need them. When you go a goal behind, you need them. When you go to 1-1 you certainly need them to try and get that extra goal."
