Boss Plays Down Talk Of Any Crisis After Back-To-Back Defeats

14 January 2020

David Artell was quick to play down any crisis talk after his Crewe Alexandra side suffered back-to-back defeats to Barnsley in the FA Cup and Swindon Town in a top of the table clash at the County Ground.

Crewe remain handily placed in 4th place in the table with games in hand on most of our promotion rivals and Artell says that not a lot has changed in terms of our targets.

The Alex boss said: “You have to put things into perspective a bit. We have lost to a Championship team in the FA Cup and the league leaders away from home. It is far from a crisis. It is not disastrous.

“Of course, we would have been in a better position if we had won them both but we didn’t.

“We are in a good position with 20 odd games left and we have to do as well as we did in the first half of the season and if we then we have a great chance. It isn’t a crisis. We could be playing in Australia with what is going on there.

“The Queen has a crisis on her hands. Her grandson is off to Canada, so there are always things to deal with in life and in football. You just have to get on with it.”
