Artell: "The Short, Sharper Stuff Paid Off At Altrincham"

15 July 2019

Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell says that the tactical work and sharpness we worked on last week showed at Altrincham at the weekend.

Crewe romped to a 6-0 win with Oli Finney grabbing a hat-trick at Moss Lane and although it was a comfortable afternoon for the Railwaymen, Artell says there is a room for improvement in all aspects.

Artell told the club’s official website: “We did more work on our sharpness last week and you could see it start to the effect it had at Altrincham. It was pleasing to see the players create numerous chance and score goals but there is a long way to go. There is room for improvement and plenty left but I think the fans could see the difference between the Nantwich performance and that one on Saturday.

“They had being doing a lot of running in those first 10 days of pre-season and were a bit leggy at Nantwich but working on those short and sharper stuff made a difference to us in the final third at Altrincham.

“It was another step in the right direction and all minutes under the belt for most of them.”
