David Artell has told the club’s official website that ‘everyone was disappointed’ that Saturday’s home game against Portsmouth was postponed due to a frozen playing surface. The game has been re-arranged for April.
Crewe are now focussed on an away trip to Swindon this weekend and the boss says that he has adopted a mini winter break.
The Crewe Alexandra manager told us: “We all wanted to play Portsmouth and had prepared for the game as usual but it was clear that on Friday that it wasn’t going to be playable.
“We were disappointed but every cloud has a silver lining and we have been able to get more training days into them. We have worked them hard on Friday and yesterday and having that intensity helps.
“We have been able to have a couple of extra days that we didn’t expect because of the weather and we have been able to reinforce messages and get new messages into them.
“We have told them that what they have achieved so far has them in a decent position and if we keep improving then we won’t have any or many dead rubbers at the end of the season. “
