Artell not happy with league position after topsy-turvy second half of the season.

Ahead of the final game of the season against Barnet, David Artell has told the club’s official web-site that he is not happy with the club’s league position. The boss has stated that if was to give himself a grade on a school report, he would rate the second half of the season as a ‘C’ for satisfactory.

“I am a half a cup full kind of guy and even though the confidence was shot when I took over and the mind-set was poor, I thought we had good enough players. Maybe that was a big rash because it needed a bit of time to turn things around but when I look back at the games against Newport, Hartlepool and Yeovil then there is 9 points. Then we conceded a two goal lead at Accrington and lost to two set-play goals against Stevenage.

“That is why I am disappointed and if I was grading it on a school report then I would say we are a C for satisfactory. We have avoided a relegation scrap but there is plenty of room for improvement.”
