David Artell has told the club’s official website that his ‘open door policy’ has helped the players get a better understanding of what is required from them.
The Alex boss says that he will continue to be honest with his players as we aim to move away from the relegation drop zone.
The Railwaymen take on an in-form Coventry City side at Gresty Road this weekend hoping to increase our unbeaten run to three games following four points on the road at Lincoln City and Stevenage.
Artell told crewealex.net: “If there is one thing I am it is honest. I am perhaps too honest at times but that is the way I am.
“If the players have a problem then they come and knock on my door and they have done. They have come in with some tough problems as well but a problem shared is a problem halved and all that.
“We have told them what they have done well and not so well. It is about being honest with each other and I will tell them the truth. If they think that it sometimes harsh then so be it, that is the game they are in. At times it can be really tough but I think they appreciate that approach.
“I will be frank with them and they can be frank with me, there is no point shying away from things or telling them things they want to hear.
“If we all strive to be better every day then we will get better and that has certainly been the case over the last six weeks.”
