Alex down after two seasons in League One.
David Artell admitted that it was ‘a season to forget’ after Crewe Alexandra were relegated back to League Two after two seasons, following what was a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Doncaster Rovers.
Crewe needed to win to keep our hopes of surviving the drop alive against the team that occupy the place above us in the table, but although we had chances of our own during the 90 minutes, the home side deserved the victory.
The defeat means the Alex are demoted with four games remaining.
The Alex boss told the club’s official website: “It has been a season to forget for a lot of reasons and across the board we have not been good enough.
“As a manager you have accept that the fans chant the players’ names when we do well and vent their frustration at the manager when it does not go well. That is part of the territory of being a manager and I accept that.
“I am top of the tree and responsibility travels upwards.
“All I can say is that we have built a team and a squad before and we will do it again. I can promise people that.
He added: “We all have a job to do and I can guarantee that I am determined as ever to bring the success that we have had over the past 2 to 3 years back.”
