Dario Gradi see's improvements on last year

Dave Artell, Crewe Alexandra Crewe boss Dario Gradi has given praise to new signings David Artell and Lee Bell.

Gradi believes the pair have strengthened Crewe giving the side a real backbone. Although Gradi still wants to see attacking skillfull football at Gresty Road he can see a vast improvement from this time last year.

Speaking to BBC Stoke: "I think David and Lee have improved the team."

"Artell is an organiser at the back and Belly will take the ball off the back players, and I think otherwise our existing players are improving.

"Overall I think the team is better and less likely to collapse - we have conceded in the last two Saturdays, but I don't think that's going to be the norm."
