CREWE boss David Artell says “a crazy 10 minutes” cost his side as they were beaten by Wanderers at the UniBol.

Josh Sheehan and Amadou Bakayoko struck early in the second half as the Whites ended their winless run in League One.

Artell was pleased with his side’s performance in the first half and felt they “frustrated” Ian Evatt’s men.

He said: “Bolton get booed off at half-time and the manager is getting a bit of abuse because we have frustrated them.

“We are not in the position to go toe-to-toe with Bolton. But when a team gets frustrated by half-time, you think another 15-20 minutes and you have got them.

“They would have to take more chances and the game would be more open. But it was a crazy 10 minutes.

“I haven’t seen the penalty back but the referee is closer. I thought the referee was very card-happy. He booked their lad (Kachunga) after 30 seconds and I didn’t see what he did wrong.

“But I am not blaming the ref, he gave it. Our lad (Luke Offord) chested the ball straight to their lad and that can’t happen at any level.

“You give the referee opportunity to give the penalty so you can’t blame anyone but ourselves. The second goal was terrible to give away, with two or three mistakes from our point of view.”

The result sees Wanderers climb to 10th in the league table, while Crewe remain bottom with just one win.
