David Artell has praised the role Jordan Bowery has done recently for the team after a slight change in position to accommodate the in-form Chris Porter. Bowery is operating more on the right flank and he swung over a perfect cross for Porter to covert at Bury on New Year’s Day.
Porter’s third goal in three games gave Crewe an early lead but we couldn’t hold on to it as Bury stepped up a gear in the second half at Gigg Lane to win 3-1.
Bowery, 27, is now 12 league games without a goal, but he did notch against Shrewsbury Town in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy back in mid-November. The former Aston Villa and Chesterfield man has six goals for the season and is currently the club’s leading marksman alongside Porter.
David Artell told crewealex.net: “Jordan hasn’t scored in a while but he is playing in a different role for us which means he doesn’t get in the box as much.
“He is doing a good job for the team with his work ethic and his ability to get back behind the ball. He is a runner and he helps with his height in our box.
“I am sure once he gets a goal, he will be up and running again. They will come again for him.”
