Boss demands faster start against Newport

15 August 2023

Lee Bell has demanded a more aggressive start from Crewe Alexandra when they entertain Newport County tonight (Tuesday, 7.45pm).

The Manager has been unhappy with the early stages of the two league games so far, which saw The Railwaymen fall 2-0 behind and have to fight back on both occasions.

Now, against an Exiles side that enjoyed a super 4-0 win over Doncaster Rovers at the weekend, he is looking for an improvement.

Bell said: “We have to show more aggression. Yes, we’ve played two good teams but if we had got on the front foot more, we would have eradicated some of the goals that have gone in.

“Newport were excellent against Doncaster so we understand the task ahead of us. They played good football and looked to get in behind a lot, so we know it will be a really tough game. 

“Graham Coughlan has had a big turnaround of players there but he is a good manager. But home form is key for us and we want to build on that.”

Crewe are unbeaten at home since February, winning six and drawing two of their matches at Mornflake Stadium.
