Artell: "It's About Striking The Right Balance Now"

13 February 2018

David Artell was pleased that his Crewe Alexandra side were harder to break down against Yeovil Town on Saturday, but now the Crewe boss wants us to be more dangerous in the final third. Crewe did conjure up some chances in the first-half but failed to take them against a fellow struggler and had to settle for a point in the end.

The Crewe Alexandra boss told the club’s official website: “We worked very hard all week on our defending and being harder to beat. I think we saw that in the game. I think Yeovil had two shots across our box in 90 minutes.

“It was pleasing to be harder to beat and to get that clean-sheet but we have to get the balance right and score at the other end. We looked dangerous at times but didn’t test them enough.

“We didn’t get the rub of the green at times either and we just fizzled out a bit in the final third in the second half or we made poor decisions. It wasn’t for a lack of effort because the players put a shift in.

The boss added: “We have scored quite a few goals of late and that gives us plenty of hope. If we can keep it tight at one end, I am sure we will score goals with the players we have.”
