Forwards Set The Tempo

19 October 2017

Work ethic set the foundation for famous win over then then league leaders on Tuesday.

David Artell says the work ethic of his front players was the key to us keeping Notts County out on Tuesday night.

The Alex boss was delighted with his side’s all-round performance in our deserved 2-0 win and he saved special praise for the work of Chris Porter and goalscorer Jordan Bowery. Bowery added a crucial goal after Michael Raynes had given us the lead on the stroke of half-time with his first goal for the club.

The Alex boss told “The front two were excellent. They worked their socks off and that is where the clean-sheet stems from. They put themselves about and made it a tough night for Hewitt and Duffy.

“The balls stuck up there and were aggressive in their play. They took some of the pressure us off and the ball stayed up there a lot more than it did at Yeovil. It bounced off them too many times but that little improvement made a massive difference.

“When you have the forwards working their socks off like that and the likes of Callum Ainley running like never before then it becomes extremely difficult for the opposition. To a man they were terrific at that.

David added: “The trick is to do it again and again and I know that it can be difficult to play at that level of intensity every week but when they play to their potential, like they did on Tuesday then we have nothing to fear in this league.”
