Crewe Alexandra manager, David Artell, wants to see his side bounce back against Accrington Stanley on Tuesday evening following our 4-1 loss at Portsmouth at the weekend.
Artell’s side gifted the opposition goals at Fratton Park to leave everyone frustrated, but the Crewe Alexandra boss says it is important to put things into perspective after six points from three tricky encounters against Peterborough, Oxford and Portsmouth.
Artell told crewealex.net: “We have lost a game of football and there was a lot of disappointment in the dressing room afterwards because a lot of it was self-inflicted.
“You expect it to be like that, the only time it isn’t is when it becomes the norm and then you are a bang in trouble anyway. We will have to lick our wounds and move on and we have done that quickly.
“When you have three fixtures against Peterborough, Oxford and Portsmouth, you have to be content with six points. I am not happy because you want to win every game but it is an okay return from a difficult week.
“You make your own luck but we didn’t get much of it at Portsmouth. It can certainly make a difference when you get a bit of it.
The boss added: “Now we have an opportunity to go and get more points on the road. I’m sure the players are looking forward to getting back out there and we will have to work hard because we know that you have to be on the money against a John Coleman side. “
