Artell Pleased With Aerial Threat

20 September 2018

Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell was pleased that his side provided a real threat in the air against Cheltenham Town last week.

The Railwaymen carved out five decent chances with headers in the game with Jordan Bowery, George Ray, Alex Nicholls and Chris Porter all going reasonably close to breaking the deadlock with their head. The best of those chances then fell to Ryan Wintle in stoppage time after he had been found fantastically well by Charlie Kirk, but he was denied  a winner by the advancing Scott Flinders.

Unfortunately, we couldn’t find that decisive breakthrough at Whaddon Road, but Artell was pleased with the threat we were able to provide.

David told “We have worked on crossing and finishing and it nearly paid off on Saturday. It is a practice drill we do quite often and it is easy to be critical after the even because we had a few chances from headers.

“It was a positive to see us offer that aerial threat and he just needed to be more clinical and take one or two of them.

The boss added: “It is something to improve on and we do that in the sessions, regardless of it being a header, shot or tap-in. “
