Artell: "We Have To Find A Way To Win"

5 November 2020

Alex boss knows we have to put more clinical in front of goal to end run of three goalless games.

David Artell has told the club’s official website that it is important that his Crewe Alexandra side find a way to win after suffering three consecutive 1-0 defeats.

Crewe face Bolton Wanderers in the FA Cup first round this weekend and the Alex boss says it is the ideal time to get back to winning ways before we face Shrewsbury in the EFL Trophy and then league leaders Peterborough United.

Ahead of our second trip of the season to the University of Bolton Stadium, Artell told us: “For all the all intent and possession we had on Tuesday night (against Gillingham), we didn’t do enough to win the game. We should have done with the chances we had but we didn’t do enough in the second half. we didn't test their goalkeeper enough.

“It should have been done and dusted in the first half because we had three or four unbelievable chances and we have to score them. They weren’t particularly difficult chances either.

“If we would have scored one or two of them then we would probably go on to win the game.

“The positive is that we are not creating chances. We are creating good ones in every game but we are not taking enough care with our finishing. It is extremely frustrating but I am not overly worried because the players are doing everything they can to turn it around.

“We just have to make sure that we start finding a way to win games and that means being more clinical in front of goal when those chances come.”
