Artell: "Teams Are Not Going To Conform To What We Want To Do"

Boss says Alex have to learn how to win against sides with different style

David Artell says his Crewe Alexandra side have to learn to win against teams with a constraining style to our own. Crewe slipped to only their second defeat in 12 games against Northampton at the weekend but the Alex boss was left hugely disappointed with the goals we conceded against Keith Curle’s side.

It was uncharacteristic of what we have achieved defensively this season and Artell says that we have overcome coping with that more direct of play.

David told the club’s official website: “We will come up against contrasting styles of play and we have to counter that. We cannot expect anyone to just conform and let us play the way we want to play. Life is not like that. Football is not like that.

“It is about imposing ourselves on the game and going right, here we are and make sure we dictate things. We need to stop them and make sure our football comes through.”
