Artell: "We Haven't Deserved To Concede In Last Two Games"

13 February 2020

David Artell says he is relatively pleased with the way his Crewe Alexandra have defended in our last two home games.

Crewe have won both home games 2-1 against Oldham and Crawley and the Alex boss believes that they have been unfortunate to concede and not keep a clean-sheet in both.

Oldham hit the Alex on the counter-attack and Artell was annoyed that a handling offence in the build-up wasn’t picked up. He was also disappointed with Crawley’s penalty award on Tuesday night claiming it was ‘soft one’ against Chris Porter.

Following the 2-1 win over Crawley, the boss told crewealex.net: “I think we have been defending well and we have been unfortunate to concede in the last two games. They haven’t deserved it.

“Against Crawley, they have forced Will (Jaaskelainen) into a really good save and were given a soft penalty. They got behind us once and I don’t think they had many touches in our penalty area. I would think it was about eight. I know they were few and far between.”
