Crewe boss says we will prepare right for two tough away games.
David Artell says travelling up and down the country to fulfil fixtures is part and parcel of being a professional football.
The Railwaymen travel to Hartlepool for this evening’s clash at Victoria Park before travelling to Portsmouth for the weekend.
Crewe have not won on the road since late October and Artell says three points against one of our relegation rivals this evening will be an enormous boost as we aim to avoid being dragged back into a scrap.
Ahead of our trip to Hartlepool, the Alex boss said: “Travelling is part of the job and you just have to get on with it. You cannot have 46 home games and you have to play everyone away, so we will go to Hartlepool and prepare right. We will then do the same on Saturday at Portsmouth.
“It is not as though they are being asked to sit on a bus for four hours and go out and play. We prepare right and the travelling should not be an excuse. Yes, it can interfere with the training but it is part and parcel of being a footballer or football manager.
“We will go down together, prepare right and go there looking to win the game.”
