Boss admits great fondness for his former club but says we need points to get our season going again.
David Artell says that sentimental values have to go firmly out of the window as Crewe Alexandra travel to his former club Morecambe this evening. The Alex need to start winning on the road if we are to have any possibility of escaping the drop back to League Two and Artell says that has to start at a club for whom he has great affection for.
Artell says that he ‘spent three great years’ as a Morecambe player and says that it is similar to Crewe in its make-up behind the scenes.
Ahead of our mid-week encounter, the boss told crewealex.net: “Morecambe are very similar to Crewe in that it has good people working for them with good morals. They all work hard and I like that in society and in football.
“There are a lot of good people behind the scenes at Morecambe, like there is here, and I had three great years there as a player. But now I am the manager of Crewe Alexandra and have been for a while now and sentiment doesn’t come into it.
“We want the three points and that has to start at Morecambe. Any good feelings I have about Morecambe and my time there, goes firmly out of the window. We are going there to win and they will be thinking exactly the same thing.”
