Boss: "It Should Have Been More Comfortable Than It Was"

24 February 2020

David Artell believes his Crewe Alexandra side should have added more goals to the two they scored against Macclesfield Town at the weekend. A Chris Porter penalty and a first senior goal from Stephen Walker put Crewe firmly in control heading into the half time break but although we had chances to score more in the second half we couldn’t add to the tally.

Crewe controlled the game but a Macclesfield goal could have made it a nervy conclusion in the final ten minutes.

The Alex boss told the club’s official website: “We deserved to win the game and it should have been more comfortable than it was. The one criticism I had after the game was that we should have scored more than the two goals we did.

“If we had converted the chances we had we could have scored two or three more in the second half, but we were not clinical enough. I don’t think we were in too much danger but a Macclesfield goal late one could have changed the complexion of it.

“You had to give Macclesfield credit as well. They were well organised and made things difficult. They put their bodies on the line and threw themselves in front of shots and get in the way.

“We managed to keep a clean-sheet and that is pleasing and it was the perfect way to bounce back after what happened against Plymouth.”
