Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell says he is looking forward to going face-to-face again with Harry Kewell at Notts County this weekend.
Kewell recently left Crawley Town to succeed Kevin Nolan at Meadow Lane and Artell says that the Australian may well alter their style of play going forward.
The Magpies are still looking for their first win of the season in any competition. After reaching last season’s play-offs they are now surprisingly in the bottom two.
Artell told the club’s official website: “Harry is a good manager and a good guy. I have great respect for what he achieved in the game. He had a great career and when he was with Crawley, we always got on quite well with each other.
“They have not had a win yet so they will be looking to beat us. We will be the same and hopefully we can get back on track.
“I am sure Harry is not one for just playing into areas or going as long. Don’t get me wrong there is an element in that in all League Two games but I am sure that is not Harry’s approach.
“It doesn’t matter if they play total football or total hoofball, what is important is how we do.”
