Artell: "We Don't Mind The Underdog Tag"

16 February 2021

Crewe Alexandra manager, David Artell, believes that there is not pressure on his side as we enter the last three months of the season.

Crewe have reached 40 points and are handily placed in 11th place in the League One table but clubs in and around us, do have some games in hand.

The Crewe boss is hoping his side can continue to operate under the radar.

Artell told the club’s official website: “We have told the players to go out and express themselves. There is no pressure on us. There is no pressure on us, not on little old Crewe.

“We have heard it all before. They will blow up at some point, they don’t have the players, you can amongst them and that isn’t a problem. I quite like having the underdog tag in most games.

“This year we have competed against established League One sides such as Shrewsbury, Burton, Rochdale, they are all established sides at this level. We aren’t.

He added: “We have to embrace the challenge and it will be great if we can get where we want to get to, if not then we more on to the next challenge.”
