"Players Are Better Equipped To Deal With Set-Backs"

14 March 2018

Crewe Alexandra manager David Artell says his side are better equipped to overcome set-backs in games. The Alex boss was referring to the winning goal Coventry City scored against us back in September when an intended clearance from Zoumana Bakayogo hit the corner flag and remained in play for Jodi Jones to run onto and create the only goal for Duckens Nazon.

It was an unfortunate touch of bad luck for the Railwaymen on the day but Artell believes that his side would brush that type of thing aside much more effectively now.

David told “We didn’t have much luck at Coventry when the ball hit the corner flag and stayed in play for them to score. It was the type of luck we were having at that time. At that time of the season and with the way the month was going for us, it knocked us for six.

“I don’t think something like that happening in a game would have the same effect. I think the group is better equipped in dealing with set-backs like that. Now they wouldn’t worry too much about it and get on with things a lot better.

He added: “We have seen that by the way they responded against Lincoln when going a goal down and at Stevenage when we were 2-0 down. They know that if they keep going then they will get chances because we have good players here, who can do that.”
