Artell: "Good To See The Players So Deflated After Morecambe Win"

26 April 2018

Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell believes that it was a really good sign that his players were deflated after last weekend’s 1-0 win over Morecambe.

A late goal from substitute Shaun Miller sealed the points for the Railwaymen in what had been a poor quality game, but Artell was encouraged by the reaction of his players.

David told “The players were deflated in the dressing room last weekend and we didn’t have to tell them. They knew but I take that as a real positive. That is a good sign.

“They were disappointed after winning a game of football and that is because they have set a standard. When they fall below that, regardless of the result, they know. They know they have to play better than that.

“We got a bit lucky to win the game against Morecambe when we didn’t play particularly well. We played a lot better at Luton but ended up getting nothing from it.

“Now normally, if you play well you usually get a result and visa-versa. If we play like we did against Morecambe then you would be in for a long, hard season. That is the reality of it.

Dave added: “You can play badly and win and play well and not win, but usually a good performance ends in a positive result. “
