Artell talks about small margins ahead of Hull trip.

David Artell Crewe Alexandra Manager

Dave Artell is confident the Railwaymen are close to turning performances into results after 2 narrow defeats in three games.

Crewe lost their league opener against Charlton but showed signs they can cope in League 1. A narrow defeat to fellow League 1 side Lincoln in the Carabao Cup was followed up with an impressive win at Bolton in the EFL Trophy.

Crewe have had chances in all three of their games since the season restarted but need to tighten up at the back.

The Hull game comes amid more rumours the defender Perry Ng is set to leave Gresty Road.

The club has not confirmed the rumours but one club linked with a move for the player, Nottingham Forest have denied their interest.

Championship club reading are also thought to be looking the 24 year old defender.

Artell said:

I don’t think we have been too far off. We know we have to improve and we will be doing everything we can to make sure those margins go for us.

If we keep working hard then we end up scoring the first goal and then we score another. We then don’t concede two goals in a game, it goes to one or none and then we are in a great position. Suddenly you have turned it around and those results go in our favour instead.

I don’t think anyone thought we would go up a level and hit the ground running, especially with the tough start we were given, but if we keep on improving then we will be fine.

The game comes too early for Tom Lowery who has resumed training. Lowery underwent surgery to deal with a hernia problem after the player suffered from groin and pelvic injuries in January.
