Boss: "We Will Lick Our Wounds And Move On"

13 January 2020

Manager Artell says that we will move on quickly from Swindon defeat

Crewe Alexandra manager David Artell says that his side suffering rare back-to-back defeats to Barnsley in the FA Cup and league leaders Swindon Town on Saturday does not make his side a bad one overnight.

Crewe have suffered back-to-back defeats just twice this season but they have incorporated cup defeats to Aston Villa and Everton Under-21s and Artell will be aiming to avoid that occurring in league games when Cheltenham travel to Gresty Road this weekend.

The Alex boss told crewealex.net: “We have suffered back to back defeats against a Championship side and the league leaders and although disappointing, it is not terminal.

“It doesn’t make us a bad team overnight and we will have to go back to basics again and not worry too much about it. There is not a lot we can do it about now.

“We may have to restore a bit of belief into them and make sure they know what a good team they are. We will lick our wounds a bit, move on and prepare right for Cheltenham.”
