Zola predicts upturn in results

29 September 2009 09:20
Crewe's top scorer Calvin Zola is convinced his side can end a run of three straight defeats against Bury. Gudjon Thordarson's side have not won in League Two since beating Macclesfield 2-1 on 5 September. Zola, 24, told BBC Radio Stoke: "We've lost three on the trot but confidence is still high that we are good enough to get a result on Tuesday. "Everyone's excited about the game, and we think our team is strong enough to get a good result." Crewe lost 5-3 at Accrington Stanley in their last outing, a result described as "embarrassing" by manager Gudjon Thordarson. "People would have looked at it and been shocked because they know our potential," added Zola. "We've been working hard, we've had a good look at ourselves and hopefully it won't be too long before we're back to winning ways." Zola, a former Newcastle United trainee, has netted six times already this season, one more than he managed during the whole of the 2008/09 campaign.
