Crewe Alexandra: Steve Davis revels in boo-boys' expectation of his team
STEVE Davis says the Gresty Road boo-boys are a good indicator of the club's rapid climb during his time in charge.
Crewe were jeered off by some sections of the home crowd when trailing 2-0 at half-time of Saturday's 2-1 defeat to bottom side Portsmouth.
It was only Crewe's second back-to-back defeat in the league since Davis took over in November 2011, when the club were 18th in League Two.
But the manager says he wants to keep ambitions high, both on the terraces and in his squad.

"For us to lose two games on the run is suddenly seen as a disaster, and that's a brilliant reaction from the fans because it proves we've come a long way," he said.
"They expect us to win every game and beat Portsmouth, who even though they are bottom of the league, are a massive club.
"We take it on the chin. We want to keep improving and doing the best we possibly can."
