2-0 victory against Accrington, their boss

David Artell

has talked about the new tactics that he used in that match.

“We had to make sure we came up with a plan to counteract what Accrington do, which is what we did,”

Crewe boss Artell told the reporters


“We worked on it for two weeks to see if we needed a different way of playing going forward

“It’s the first time we’ve done it (played 4-4-2) in a long while, but the lads picked it up. And we were the better team in both halves without it being a vintage passing display.

“We should have had more goals. It was a thoroughly deserved victory against one of the best teams in this league. I can’t remember them having any chances, there was certainly no last-ditch defending by us.”

Here is what Accrington boss Coleman said in the post-match press conference:

“We started brightly, had a couple of chances and Crewe couldn’t get out of their half. Our game plan was working well, but we gifted them a goal and in the end they were good value for their win,

“We didn’t play well and one or two lads know they’re better than what they showed. There were a couple of individual errors and it is very difficult when you are down to 10 men against a good team like Crewe.

“A lot of teams are in the same situation as us, so we’ve got to be better. But the defeat was down to our mistakes, for the first goal and the sending off.”
