Boss: "15 Left And They Are All Big Games, Every One Of Them Is Worth Three Points"

10 February 2020

David Artell says there are 15 games to go and there will be no-one to blame but ourselves if we don’t remain right in the promotion mix.

In-form Crewe are currently in second place in League Two, two points behind league leaders Swindon Town but we still have that one remaining game in hand against third placed Exeter City to come in March.

It all look perfectly poised for an exciting end to the season for a host of clubs and Artell says his team have to continue to show our consistent form.

The Crewe boss told us: “There are 15 games to go and that is a long way to go in football. All we can do is carry on like we are and continue to pick up points. The league position will take care of itself and if we are not promoted at the end of the season then there will be no-one else to blame but ourselves.

“People keep saying to me that it’s a big game, that Crawley is now a big game but then Plymouth on Saturday is a big game and then a derby game against Macclesfield is a big game and then Morecambe, who are fighting for their lives is a big one as well.

“They are all big games because they are games and they are worth three points. We have got to continue to be consistent, show our quality and pick up enough points to make sure we are playing a league higher next season. That’s the aim and promotion is not a taboo subject.

“We can talk about it and what it would mean for the club but we honestly take it one game at a time.”
