David Artell says he is only satisfied with the season up to now. The Alex are fourth in League Two and are on a run that has seen us lose just two of our last 17 matches but the demanding Crewe Alexandra boss is after even more.
Artell is quick to keep his players grounded by saying that nothing is won before Christmas and that there is plenty of work still to be done if we are to achieve our ultimate aim of promotion.
Artell told the club’s official website: “We are on the way and I am pleased ‘ish’.
“There is still room for improvement because we are not where we want to be. The players have done well but there is still more to come. They have all set targets and if we can hit those targets then we won’t be far off where we want to be.
“We are a work in progress and we have improved over the last 12 months. In fact if you look over the calendar year there won’t be many teams who have collected more points than us.
“They can all improve, it doesn’t matter if that is Ports, Greenie or Hunty at one end or Regan Griffiths, Rio or Connor Heath at the other.
“If we can all improve by that little bit then than usually manifests itself into more wins and more points and we have to stay in the mix.”
