Crawley Have Become A Tougher Nut To Crack Under Yems

11 February 2020

The Alex welcome John Yems' Crawley to Gresty Road this evening.

David Artell believes that tonight’s opponents, Crawley Town, will be another ‘tough nut to crack’ and under their new manager John Yems.

Yems, 60, has vast coaching experience and he has certainly made Crawley harder to beat since replacing the Italian Gabby Cioffi back in December.

Crawley arrive in South Cheshire on the back of just one defeat in their past ten games and they held Salford to a goalless draw on their travels at the weekend.

Ahead of tonight’s clash at Gresty Road, Artell told the club’s official website: “Crawley have changed their manager and they will be a tough nut to crack. They have gone to Plymouth and drawn, they have drawn at Colchester and they went to Salford on Saturday and drawn.

“Has that nullified their attacking threat? Not drastically, so we know it is going to be another tough game for us.”
