"We Have Been Given A Tough Start But We Have Got To Play Them All At Some Point"

15 September 2020

David Artell expects another tough baptism to life in League One when his Crewe side travel to Hull City this weekend.

Crewe face another side relegated from the Championship last season after losing our seasonal opener 2-0 at home to Charlton Athletic.

Artell admits that his side have been presented with a tough start to the fixture list with relegated Wigan Athletic and play-off finalists Oxford United coming up in the next few weeks.

The Crewe boss told us: “When you look at the fixtures we have been given a tough start. In the opening four or five fixtures we have the three relegated sides from the Championship and Oxford, who lost in the play-off final.

“You have to play them all at some point so there is no point worrying.

“We have been used to winning games, be it at home or away, so that is what we want to be doing again in this league.

“We know we have to get slightly better than we were on Saturday but like I’ve said there were some real positives to take from the performance against Charlton. We were good between the two boxes but we need to be better in both boxes.

He added: “Now we have Hull, who were in the Premier League not so long ago, and now they are in League One. It is about us going there and giving a good account of ourselves and win the game.”
