Artell: "With A Bit More Imagination We Could Have Snatched It"

20 August 2018

David Artell felt that his Crewe Alexandra side just lacked a touch of ‘imagination’ to unlock a stubborn MK Dons defence. Crewe collected a deserved point for our efforts against the promotion favourites and Artell is not particularly worried that we have scored just once in three games after smashing Morecambe for six on the opening day.

Artell told the club’s official website: “I thought that by and large we played really well at times on Saturday against a good side. We just couldn’t find that cutting edge to nick it and get the goal that would probably have won it.

“They will be thinking the same so overall a draw was probably the right result. I am not overly worried because we have enough quality and talent in our squad to score goals.

“We have just have to make better decisions in the final third of the pitch and vary what we do. We became a bit predictable and I want them to produce skill and use their imagination more. We have done it before, so there is no reason why we can’t do it.

“I don’t want to be negative in any way about the performance because I thought it was good. It was a good football game and you won’t get many League Two games like that one.

“Paul (Tisdale) came into the office afterwards and we were both complimentary about the two teams. I think we are two teams heading in the right direction.”
