David Artell says there were real positives to take from our performance at the Abbey Stadium but we were left once again to rue missed opportunities. The Alex were presented with a plethora of openings to break the deadlock but the likes of the recalled Shaun Miller, Callum Ainley, Chris Porter and substitute Ollie Finney couldn’t quite take them.
The Alex boss was evidently pleased with the way we controlled large parts of the game against a strong Cambridge United side under Colin Calderwood and making sure we obtained our first shut -out in eight games.
David told crewealex.net: “It should definitely had been three points and we are all disappointed that it wasn’t.
“We controlled large parts of the games and had some glorious chances. We just lacked that composure and quality to finish them off. We had six, seven, eight really good openings. Some we missed or saved and others were when we picked the wrong options.
“I think they had two half chances. One when Dunk was allowed to run from his own half and the other where there was some pin-ball inside our box but other than that I cannot remember too many more.
“Our defending was good and it was nice to get that first clean-sheet for a while but we were disappointed because we had a lot of opportunities to have won the game.”
