Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell says he takes it as a compliment that opposition managers are trying to stop the attacking intent of his side. Crewe’s deserved 2-1 win over Plymouth took our recent points return to 10 points from a possible 12 and it should have been more comfortable with the chances created last night.
The Crewe fans who attended the match could not fail to have been impressed with our superb first half display that saw us 2-0 up thanks to goals from wide men, Charlie Kirk and Owen Dale.
The in-form Railwaymen had enough opportunities in both halves to add to that tally and Artell says that if other managers elect to change formation or personnel to try and combat us, is only a compliment to the way his side are playing in League One.
The boss told crewealex.net: “I don’t know if managers are particularly setting up to stop us. You will have to ask the opposition manager but what I do know is that we will keep on doing our stuff and play the way we do.
“We will keep going and no-one here is getting carried away. We have won a few games and that’s it. We will all keep working hard and look to improve.
“I’ve said that to the players. I’ve told them that I am here to help them. I will work on their weaknesses, their flaws and strengths and look to improve them, every single one of them.
“The group want to work and improve and that is all you can ask. Keep improving fellas and they do, they want to get better.
The boss added: “Anyone who saw our game against Lincoln in cup or the Charlton game at the start of the season will know that we are a far better team now. We are heading in the right direction, but there is still more to come from this group.”
