Artell: "Stevenage Will Be Equally As Tough As Exeter"

6 March 2020

David Artell says that this weekend’s opponents Stevenage are a dangerous opponent because they are in desperate need of three points in their bid to remain in the EFL. Second placed Crewe need the win for very different reasons and Artell says that his team will be prepared to avoid any slip up at Gresty Road.

Stevenage are currently bottom of League Two and trail Macclesfield by 8 points but do have a game in hand.

Ahead of this weekend’s home clash with Alex Revell’s side, the Crewe boss said: “We got a point on Tuesday at Exeter, we would have preferred three but it was a point away at one of our closest rivals so we move on.

“It will be equally as tough tomorrow. Stevenage are entering a no lose situation and that makes them a dangerous opponent. They are coming to the point where they cannot lose too many if they are to survive.

“They are fighting for their lives and that makes them dangerous. They haven’t played for two weeks, because their game was called off last week, so they will be fresh and may have got over one or two knocks.

“We have to play well and if we do then we know we can beat anyone in his league. They will ask questions and we will have to come up with the answers and make sure our quality comes through.”
