Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell has described the first half of the season as ‘ridiculously frustrating’ after our indifferent results. Crewe have produced top 7 from at home but bottom two form on the road and the boss knows that his side have to be more resilient on their travels in the second half of the campaign, if we are to avoid being dragged into a scrap.
Ahead of this weekend’s trip to Forest Green, the boss said: “The first half of the season has been ridiculously frustrating. I don’t think that overall the performances have been that bad but there has been too many times, especially away that our performances have not been reflected in the result.
“There have times we have not played to the required standard but they have not been that many.
“We have to make sure that we become more resolute. We find it difficult to come back in games and if you miss a chance or make a mistake, you need to back yourself to get back in there again and have another chance.
“The confidence has been dented but they all have the ability to get back in there and take those chances more regularly.
“If it doesn’t improve over Christmas then of course we have to look to address it and that could be by looking at new players or giving some of our own a chance. “
