Crewe boss on clash against Portsmouth

Crewe Alex are on the south coast to take on promotion-chasing Portsmouth this afternoon.

Manager Dave Artell is hoping his team can bounce back following their 4-0 hammering at Hartlepool on Tuesday night.

The Alex boss pulled no punches after the defeat and wants a response from his players at Fratton Park.

The Railwaymen go into the game without striker Chris Dagnall, who is sitting out the second game of a three-match ban.
