The recent form of Jordan Bowery has come no surprise to boss David Artell. Artell was eager to sign the 26-year-old on a permanent deal following his success on loan with us last season and after starting the season on the bench, the forward has forced his way into the starting XI.
The Crewe Alexandra manager now wants the former Aston Villa striker to show the same level of aggression he did on Tuesday night on a more regular basis. The Nottingham-born Bowery terrorised the County backline and scored his second goal in three matches in our 2-0 win.
David Artell told the club’s official website: “Jordan has played in the Premier League, so I am not surprised at all because he is a good player. He reached the top level, so he isn’t rubbish.
“He went out and proved it again on Tuesday night. Has he got to believe it more? Yes. And we want him to become a bit more aggressive on the pitch but when he is and runs into those channels like he really means it, then he has the ability to be an outstanding player.
“He is a terrific lad and another nice kid. If my daughters, who are a bit young at the moment, were to bring someone like him home, I would be delighted.
“He is a lovely fella. A lovely looking fella and a footballer. He is nice as pie but when he is aggressive like that on the pitch then he is a real handful. Jordan and Chris Porter led the line terrificly well”
