"If We Want To Achieve Anything, Those Draws Have To Turn Into Wins"

1 February 2021

David Artell couldn’t disguise his disappointment after his Crewe Alexandra side didn’t go on to claim all three points against Ipswich Town on Saturday after Charlie Kirk fired us in a lead just before the hour mark.

Paul Lambert’s side struck back through substitute Aaron Drinan with 15 minutes remaining and held out for a draw despite having Teddy Bishop sent off in the final 10 minutes following two bookable offences.

Artell told the club’s official website: “It was disappointing not to have won the game after getting our noses in front. If you want to achieve anything then you have got to win that game 1-0 and we want to achieve things here.

“I suppose that is where our standards are. We set our standards high but I don’t think they are not obtainable.

“In that game when you have got your noses in front, you don’t concede but we have ended up conceding one from a tackle.

He added: “We performed better down there and ended up losing 1-0. We weren’t as good against Ipswich on Saturday, with the same team if you like and ended up with a point, so that puts things into context a bit.”
