Artell: "Play Well And Usually The Results Look After Themselves"

27 September 2018

Crewe still targetting their first away win in League Two.

Crewe Alexandra are still seeking their first away win of the season in Sky Bet League Two and they travel to Nottingham this weekend to face Harry Kewell’s County side.

The Australian manager recently replaced Kevin Nolan at Meadow Lane after he left his position at Crawley to take up the challenge of moving the struggling Magpies away from the bottom of the table.

After reaching last season’s play-offs, Notts County’s start to the new season has been one of the major surprises. County are still looking for their first win of the new season and are currently in the bottom two.

Manager David Artell says his players will have to stand up and show some character in a fixture we lost 4-1 back in February.

Ahead of our weekend trip to the oldest football club in the world, Artell said: “We have done well at home until the Port Vale game but we still have not won away. We had a great win at Tranmere when we came back but in the other games we have played in patches.

“We were unlucky at Newport and Carlisle when we should have got something from the two games, especially at Carlisle where we the better side. We played one half at Cheltenham and they know they have got to be better.

“We cannot afford to play well for 45 minutes or an hour. We have go to show more character away from home and if we play well then the result usually looks after itself.

“A big part of it will be having the belief that we can go out there and do the business. We have to work out what the opposition want to do and shackle that. We then have to play our football and stick in games more when we are up against it.

He added: “The one time we really did that away from home was at Tranmere and getting a goal back in that game at 3-1 changed everything for us.”
