Boss targets consistent run to end the season to give ourselves any chance of escaping relegation.
David Artell says it is important that ‘no-one feels sorry for ourselves’ as we enter the final seven games of a troublesome season. Crewe will need to produce a really consistent run of results in the final fixtures to stand any chance of surviving the drop, but whilst it is mathematically still possible, Artell says that the hope remains.
Crewe host fellow strugglers Fleetwood Town at the Alexandra Stadium this weekend in need of three home points and to an end a club record of seven successive home defeats.
Ahead of our meeting with Fleetwood, Artell told us: “We have not got to feel sorry for ourselves. We have to give it everything we have got in the last seven games and if we can get a run together then anything can happen. If it is not enough then we have got to get over it quickly.
“We cannot take it into next season. We have to get our chins off the floor after what has happened this season and come again. The only ones who can put it right is us. That has to be the moral of the story.
The boss added: “I do feel better after the changes we have put in place. I feel that the changes we have made and the appointments we are set to make that we will be in a better position going forward. It has been done in the best interest of the club and I’m happy with it.”
