David Artell says his team are in good shape as we head to Plymouth this weekend
Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell has revealed that there are ‘no more major concerns’ as the Railwaymen head to Plymouth for our final away game of the season. A 3-0 win over Leyton Orient confirmed our League Two status, but Artell wants his players to remain totally professional, especially as Plymouth, Doncaster and outsiders Portsmouth can still win the League Two title.
The Alex boss is having to cope without any of his four main centre-halves and the versatile Billy Bingham looks set to fill in at the back once again after impressive displays against Yeovil and the O’s. He is set to be partnered at the back once again by Perry Ng.
Artell will have striker Jordan Bowery available again for the trip to Home Park, after EFL rules prevented him from facing his parent club on Saturday.
The boss told crewealex.net: “We do not have any more major concerns for Saturday. They all seemed to come through the Leyton Orient game with no real problems.
“If I’m honest, it wasn't a physically demanding second half on Saturday. The job was done in the first half and the second half was nowhere as intense as the first 45 minutes needed to be.
He added: “The players are in good shape. We gave them an extra rest day and they will be ready for the weekend.”
