Crewe are already through to the knockout stages of the Papa John's Trophy, but boss is targetting win against Wolves youngsters tonight to help with belief.
David Artell says that he will pick a team good enough to beat the youngsters from Wolverhampton Wanderers in tonight’s Papa John’s Trophy tie at Mornflake Stadium because ‘we have to learn to win again’.
The FA Cup aside, Crewe have found success in the cup competitions this season and have already qualified for the knockout stages of the Football League Trophy following wins over Shrewsbury and Wigan. Artell wants that to continue against James Collins’ Wolves side tomorrow this evening to give the dressing room and supporters a lift.
Ahead of tonight’s Papa John’s Trophy tie, Artell said: “We have to take positives from every game and we want to win every game we play in. I think that is especially important at the moment.
“We have to learn to win again and we have done relatively well in the cup matches this season and this is another home game, and another chance to get a win.
“We will certainly have to earn it, because Wolves, like all Premier League sides will have good players. We have to make sure we don’t miss that opportunity by putting in a good performance and making sure we win the game.
“It is nice to be through on the back of what we have done previously, but we want to win the group, secure a home game if we can and make as much progress in the competition as we can.
“Hopefully, if we can do that then it will rub off into our league form, which is always the number one priority.”
