Artell: "We Haven't Cracked Anything"

27 March 2017

Alex boss demands more as he wants to end the season as high as possible.

Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell has warned his players against the danger of becoming complacent. The Railwaymen enjoyed their third away win on the bounce at Carlisle on Saturday but the Crewe boss wants more. The club’s only defeat in the last five games came at home to struggling Newport County after leading 1-0 at half-time and Artell says his team need to learn the lessons from that defeat.



The Crewe boss told crewealex.net: “We are on to the players about being complacent. We haven’t cracked anything. We have won four games out of five games but that doesn’t make us Brazil or Germany.



“There is a long way to go and next week is another challenge, another game we will look to win. I wanted to finish the season with as many wins as we can get. We have three but I want more. I am not settling for 15 points or 19 points or whatever. That is a defeatist attitude to me.



The boss added: “I am a Yorkshireman and a spade is spade. We will be optimistic and see where our form can take us. Why can't we win the last win  the last 7 games?"
