"We Have To Use Yeovil Frustration As A Spur For Three Points"

26 October 2018

Boss targets three points after being held to a draw at Huish Park on Tuesday.

Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell says that his team will use the frustration of only getting a point at Yeovil on Tuesday evening as a great spur for this weekend’s home game against Grimsby Town.

Crewe Alexandra produced one of their most consistent performances of the season at Huish Park, but couldn’t quite find that winning goal on the night. Crewe dominated much of the ball but in the end had to settle for a 1-1 draw for our efforts.

Artell was pleased with the performance - but he and his players were disappointed not to leave Somerset with all three points after such an encouraging display.

Ahead of our home encounter with the Mariners, the Alex boss told us: “We played really well on Tuesday night and deserved to win the game. We attacked them down both flanks and through the middle but we just couldn’t find that second goal.

“Everyone said how well we played and I spoke to Darren (Way) after the game and he was saying how well we played. It was nearly a top notch performance but what was lacking was the three points. We were disappointed that we only got a point.

“I said to the boys that to go to Yeovil and dominate the ball like we did and be disappointed with a point is showing a real positive sign. They were disappointed in the dressing room and that was a great to see.

The boss added: “Now after collecting four points from the two away games, we have to get three points against Grimsby. That has to be the objective tomorrow.”
