Steve Davis felt that his Crewe side were robbed of at least a point following their 1-0 defeat to MK Dons at Stadium:MK.

Dons striker Patrick Bamford netted the only goal of the game in the 20th minute, applying the finish after Jason Banton had left Alex defender Kelvin Mellor for dead. Bamford could have opened the scoring for the hosts even earlier than that after sending an effort on to the crossbar while Ryan Colclough almost equalised late on. Crewe's search for a win in all competitions goes on having drawn with Rotherham on the opening day and lost to Bury in the League Cup in midweek, but boss Davis insists they should not have tasted defeat again at stadiummk.

"I thought we deserved something out of the game for our second-half performance. They were the better team in the first half - I accept that," Davis said.

"But the majority of shots they had were speculative efforts from distance, the only time they actually got in behind was for the goal.

"Kelvin has got done, he got a little bit too tight and the lad has got on the outside, but maybe we should have got a little bit more cover across.

"I got them in at half-time and had a little pop at them about a few things - I told them to get in among them a little bit more and to play further up the pitch.

"We were desperately unlucky not to get at least a point. We just pushed people on; we had nothing to lose as we were 1-0 down at half-time."
