Artell: "Goals Change Games And We Have Got To Start Taking Our Chances Better"

21 September 2020

David Artell firmly believes that once his Crewe Alexandra side rediscover their goalscoring touch they will be just fine in League One. The Railwaymen have narrowly lost their opening two games to former Championship sides, Charlton Athletic and Hull City, but the Crewe boss says there have been plenty of positives to take from the two performances.

Following the 1-0 win defeat at Hull at the weekend, the Alex boss was quick to add that we are in the results business and that we have to start converting some of the chances we continue to create at this level.

Artell told the club’s official website: “We had three great chances to take the lead. Granted they had a really good on as well and Will (Jaaskelainen) had to make a good save. Owen (Dale) has got in and seen his shot turned behind. Oli was in a great position but took a touch too long. He then created a great chance for Mikael and that should have been a tap in.

“We did enough to have won the game so to end up losing it was difficult to take, but that’s football and sometimes you don’t deserve to lose.

“The performance was okay, it was acceptable again and I thought defensively we were terrific. We have to take the positives from it but we know it is a results business and we are here to win football matches.

“Goals decide games and we have to take our chances when the opportunities come. When we do, we will be fine because we are improving with each performance.”
