Crewe Alexandra: Steve Davis laments 'bad performance' against Colchester
Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis acknowledged his side produced a "bad performance" in their 4-0 defeat by Colchester on Saturday.
Goals from Kurtis Guthrie, Owen Garvan, Drey Wright and Brennan Dickenson gave the Us a thumping victory.
Crewe have slipped to 10th in the table after a run of just two wins in 15 games in all competitions.
Already out of the FA Cup, the EFL Cup and the Checkatrade Trophy, they do not play again until 10 December.
