Artell: "Mistakes Killed Us"

27 November 2017

David Artell still believes that there is still not much dividing the teams in EFL League Two after his Crewe Alexandra side lost narrowly to league leaders Luton Town at the weekend. Second half goals from Danny Hylton and Luke Berry gave The Hatters a 2-1 win at Gresty Road and Artell believes that only individual mistakes cost us the points in the end.

The Crewe boss told “I still think there is nothing in this league. There is no dominant team and we probably played the best equipped team at the weekend. They have good attacking players but they didn’t pull us apart.

“I don’t think there is a Portsmouth or Plymouth in this league this year and it is going to be tight. I think because there is much of a muchness in this league, it is much more competitive this year.

“If you can go unbeaten for 7, 8, 9 matches then you have a chance to really propel up the league. Exeter have done it earlier in the season and now the likes of Notts County and Luton are showing that level of consistency.

“We have to try and get some wins on the spin. We seem to win one then lose one. It is those small steps that turn into larger steps.

“Luton are top of the league because they make few mistakes and take their chances when they come along.”
