Boss says goals conversion rate has to improve going forward.
David Artell was delighted to see his leading scorer, Mikael Mandron, back amongst the goals against MK Dons. The former Sunderland and Gillingham man converted two Charlie Kirk assists at Stadium MK in the opening 20 minutes to seal all three points for Crewe Alexandra
His finely taken brace takes his tally to 12 for the season.
Artell told the club’s official website: “Mikael was in there to stick them in and that was good to see.
“The only disappointing thing was that we didn’t score than the two we did. We had good chances to score more and we really should have been four or five ahead before they had that late surge in the last 15 minutes. They threw bodies forward and Will (Jaaskelainen) had to make a couple of good saves.
“The game was another example of us not being clinical enough and killing the game off. That is an area for improvement and the players understand that. The more chances we put away, the more chance we have of getting positive results and that would mean we would be higher in the table.
“If we had put away more chances then we would be up the league. If you take your chances, it makes a massive difference. Two was enough but if you take the Sunderland game and what happened there then it wasn’t. It was a good learning curve for us.”
