Artell:"Delighted With Our Clinical Edge"

21 December 2019

David Artell was delighted with his side's clinical edge as we romped to a 5-1 win at Stevenage. Chuma Anene netted twice with Oli Finney and Daniel Powell also on target. Scott Cuthbert completed the scoring by turning a Harry Pickering cross into his own net.

The only downside was the soft goal we conceded with seven minutes left with Cuthbert scoring a header from a corner.

Following the 5-1 win, the Crewe boss told crewealex.net: “It was a bit nip and tuck for the first 20 minutes but I thought it was coming. We created some changes before we scored two in three minutes. It could have been four or five at half-time. We told them to be more clinical in the second half and put those chances away and we did.

“I didn’t feel threatened and wasn’t overly worried and we were clinical today. I’m sure the second goal will get a few views on social media and all that because it was terrific goal. Charlie has created both goals in the first half and will probably get booed but that’s him. He is marmite to some but as long as he is creating and scoring goals then he will do for me.

“We should have scored more and the thing that annoyed me was the goal we conceded. That annoyed me a lot because it was so soft. It took a bit of a deflection to be fair but I was disappointed to concede.

“We have come to a tough place against a team that don’t concede too many goals at home and don’t lose many and made them look ordinary.

He added: “If we can keep churning out results and scoring goals then we will have more good afternoons like this one. It is two defeats in 18 games, so that’s a good stat and we have to keep it going.”
