David Artell says his Crewe Alexandra did not allow any signs of complacency to creep in their game against the league’s bottom side. Crewe ran out convincing 3-1 winners at the Alexandra Stadium with the only downside being Stevenage’s late consolation goal in the 90th minute to ruin our clean-sheet.
Artell says his players deserve credit for recording their 8th straight home win – their best run since 1938 and the Crewe boss says that the hunger was there from his players to get the job done.
Artell told crewealex.net: “We had a tough week in terms of the travelling to Exeter and playing on a heavy pitch down there but the players prepared right for Stevenage and did what they had to do.
“They made sure they were professional and prepared right for another tough game because they are fighting for their lives and need the points.
“I thought we were hungrier than them and made sure we came out in the second half and made sure we scored the goals we should have done in the first half.
“There is still plenty to work on and we will go through the video and go through the bits and pieces we could have done better with.
“Then we will rest, recover and prepare for Mansfield at the weekend.”
