Crewe Alexandra boss David Artell believes that Stevenage may be different because they recently appointed Alex Revell as their new player/manager in the wake of Graham Westley’s resignation.
Stevenage are currently eight points adrift at the bottom and will be aiming to spring an upset and disrupt our promotion hopes into the bargain. With games running out, Revell knows that his team will have to start picking up wins if they are to avoid the drop.
Ahead of this weekend’s fixture at Gresty Road, the Alex boss said: “Alex has been in charge of one game and they will be slightly different. I am sure he will have his own ideas and will want to do things his way.
“We will prepare right and not worry too much about them.
“We went down there and played well on the day and took our chances and we need to do the same again this weekend. It was a good victory for us before Christmas but it has no bearing on tomorrow.
“The focus will be on us and what we need to do. We will know what Stevenage will and will not do and go from there.
“People talk to me about pressure but honestly I don’t feel and I don’t think the players and the staff do either. We are second in the league. Stevenage are bottom eight points adrift and that is real pressure. I am sure Alex would swap league positions and that is what we have to be wary of because Stevenage will be giving everything they have.”
