David Artell has been impressed with the way Harry Kewell has adjusted to life as a League Two manager. The former Leeds and Liverpool forward was offered the Crawley post in the summer after serving his apprenticeship as Watford’s Under-23 coach and although it took him a while to realise what League Two was all about, his ideas have been implemented and a change of fortune has occurred for the most part.
The Red Devils arrive in South Cheshire this weekend, four points ahead of Crewe in the league table in 17th place.
The Crewe boss told us: “Harry had a great playing career. He was a top player.
“He probably found it difficult at the start of the season. I think he realised the demands of League Two football and that there is a time and place to play your football. Now he has a nice blend of his football principles with that bit of steel you also need.
“I’ve said it many times, there is not a lot between the teams in this league. It is all about consistency. Any League Two side can be good on their day and on another one they can be bad. It is up to us to make it a bad day for Crawley.
“It is another football match, at home and another chance to get three points. I don’t see it as any different to any other game. It is another opportunity for us and they are all important. That doesn’t matter if it is Crawley, Cheltenham or Luton.”
