Artell: “Nobody Could’ve Begrudged Us Three Points”

14 February 2018

Boss Dave Artell says the Alex squad need to forget the hard luck stories and start getting points on the board after another impressive performance at Accrington Stanley yielded no reward.

The Alex controlled the match in Lancashire for large spells but were undone by a single goal, meaning it's just one point taken from a possible 18 in the last six matches.

Artell said: “All of our forward players had good chances – some glorious chances – but they have to go in the back of the net, and I don’t think anyone could’ve begrudged us three points.

“We were the best team by a county mile all game. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a terrible goal to concede because the lad’s got in behind, but they’ve had one other shot in the game.

“We had all the ball, all the play, and numerous chances but still managed to lose.

“That’s been us the last few weeks. We should’ve beat Carlisle, should’ve beat Swindon, should’ve got a draw against Wycombe – we’re just throwing points away and it’s got to stop.

“It’s all irrelevant now though. The history books say we’ve lost and we’ve got to get that into our heads, and quite quickly."
