David Artell has told the club’s official website that he will continue to encourage his players to play football out from the back, but not in the manner which presented AFC Wimbledon with goal scoring chances on Tuesday evening.
Crewe held in the game but eventually lost 3-2 to the Dons and Artell was understandably frustrated by the goals we conceded at Plough Lane.
Artell has told the club’s official website: “We gave away really soft goals on Tuesday night and that was really frustrating. Our decisions on the ball were not good enough and when they are not good enough you present opportunities to the opposition to score against us.
“I can half accept that we can concede goals when we are trying to play our football but not in the manner or the extent we did at Wimbledon. We cannot concede poor goals like that and that made it very tough going into the second half – but credit to the lads they kept going, held in there with some last ditch blocks and tackles and all that and actually created enough chances to perhaps have got something from the game in the final 10 minutes.
“They are the fine lines between winning and losing and we have to make sure we come out on the right side of them.”
