Crewe manager Dario Gradi wants his team to improve their points tally by playing with more confidence.

Although Gradi has been impressed with his players' endeavour so far, he thinks his squad needs more belief.

He told Alex's official website: "Some of our players aren't quite as confident in games as I think they should be. When you're playing the ball through midfield you have to be confident in your own ability to retain the ball.

"The passing is sometimes off because of the decision making process, when to pass the ball, how much weight to put on the ball. It isn't as good as it is in training because of the little bit of panic that there is in games.

"Most of the time it isn't down to poor technique and more down to poor decisions being made. That comes down to confidence. So we know what we have to do to improve, the trick now is to do it."
