Artell says he is relatively happy with first half of the season but stresses nothing has been achieved as yet.
Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell has declared himself ‘satisfied’ for large parts of the first half of the season, but has stressed that not a lot has been achieved yet.
The Alex occupy third place in the League Two table and have a 3rd round FA Cup tie against Barnsley to look forward to tomorrow, but Artell continues to demand more from his players and staff.
Crewe ended a consistent 2019 with a 3-1 home win over Scunthorpe and followed that up with an even better display when beating Carlisle 4-1 on New Years’ Day.
The Alex boss told crewealex.net: “I have been satisfied with large parts of the season but not totally satisfied. We have had some set-backs along the way, like Salford on Boxing Day, so there is always room for improvement.
“We are in the old Fourth Division. If we were doing this in the Championship then I would be a lot happier, so there is a long way to go.
“This season we are going along nicely but there is still a long way to go to get where we want to be. We have to keep pushing and if we can then we have a chance of being successful.
“An FA Cup game is different because you only get one shot or two shots if you need a replay and you have to give it everything because if you don’t then you miss out. “
