Artell: "Ipswich Defeat Was Annoying But You Have To Quickly Move On"

2 November 2020

David Artell has told the club’s official website that it was ‘annoying’ that we couldn’t convert our chances into goals at Portman Road on Saturday. Luke Offord and Tom Lowery missed great openings in the first half and the same two players forced Tomas Holy in the Ipswich goal into superb saves in the second half.

Crewe dominated the possession against an Ipswich side going well but were left with nothing to show for our efforts after Oli Hawkins headed in the far post following a short corner routine.

Crewe were left to rue those missed opportunities but Artell says that we have got to use the positives from the performance and only look forward to Gillingham on Tuesday evening.

The Crewe boss said: “It was annoying not to get anything from Saturday because I felt we deserved the three points, but it is important not to get too high when you win and too low when you lose.

“There is no point beating yourself up about it. You have to move on quickly and we have Gillingham tomorrow night.

“We can reflect on the Ipswich performance, and go through what we did well and not so well but we have to move on. There is no point still thinking about Ipswich today.

He added: “It is all about improving from one game to the next and the next time we have those chances in a game, we have to take them. It is as simple as that. “
