David Artell says that Crewe Alexandra need to keep on striving to be better and that no-one will be resting on their laurels now that we have reached the so-called landmark of 50 points. The Alex boss has already stated that the target very much remains to collect as many points as we can from the eight remaining matches.
The Railwaymen now travel to Mansfield this weekend aiming to use Saturday’s 6-1 win over Crawley as a springboard to go on a strong run until the end of the season.
Artell told the club’s official website: “We are always striving to be better. We scored six against Crawley but was critical of the performance in the first half an hour. We conceded a poor goal and if we had played like that in the final 30 minutes then we could have gone away with a different perspective.
“The fact that we kicked on and played well in the second half was good but it doesn’t mask the fact that we didn’t play to our level in the first half an hour.
“We have to play at the level all the time because after going 1-0 down and not playing particularly well could have been costly if the conditions had changed. If we had been chasing the game in the last half an hour then it could have been a different day.
The boss added: “As I said on Saturday goals changed games and the goals we got in a short space of time on Saturday completely changed the complex of the game. “
