Artell: "If We Had Been Boxing, The Referee Would Have Stopped It"

24 October 2018

Boss targets home points after decent return on the road.

David Artell now hopes that his Crewe Alexandra side can build on the four points attained away from home over the last few days.

The Railwaymen finally recorded that first away win in the league with a well deserved victory at 10-men Stevenage on Saturday and then we really should have collected another three points after having the better of the game against Yeovil last night.

Crewe took an early lead through the in-form Jordan Bowery but we couldn’t hold to the advantage long enough with Alex Fisher equalising for the Glovers.

Crewe went on to dominate much of the second half with Artell saying afterwards that if it had been a boxing duel, it would have been stopped.

Yeovil managed to survive concerted pressure though and we had to settle for a point from comfortably our best away performance of the season.

David told the club’s official website: “"It was an absolutely terrific performance, the fans who came will have seen that. I spoke to a few people in the tunnel there and they’re saying the same thing and they’re from Yeovil.

"If it was a boxing match it would have been stopped. We deserved far more than a point.

"If there was one negative it was that we didn't stick away more chances. The amount of times we got in behind and made the wrong decision right at the end.

"Don’t get me wrong, looking at the bigger picture of the last four days, would I have taken four points? Of course I would, going into two home games.

"But at the same time, when you get the opportunity to get some points, you want to take them and we didn’t quite manage to do that.

"If we play like that, home and away, we’ll get what we deserve eventually."
