David Artell says there is room for improvement in all departments and he will be setting individual and team targets for when the players resume full training next week. The Crewe Alexandra boss says that a percentage increase in all areas could see the Railwaymen pushing towards a potential play-off place next season.
Although Crewe had the joint best home record in League Two last season, the Alex boss says that there is still room for improvement there and our poor away results have to improve if we are going to be contenders.
Artell is also after more goals from all over the pitch and more clean-sheets as a team unit.
He told the club’s official website: “There is always room for improvement in all areas. We had a good home record last season but didn’t win enough away games. If we had won three or four more away games then we would have been in the play-offs.
“We want to show that we can win as many games as we did at home again and make sure we show that we can go away from home and win games, not draw them or lose 1-0 but go and win.
“We can keep more clean-sheets than we did last season and the players know they can chip in with more goals. We need to score goal from all over as that takes some of the pressure off the forward players.
“We will set targets and the players will have their own targets to go for as well. Hopefully, it will all help us have a successful season.”
