DEREK ADAMS | I Thought We Were Excellent

28 December 2020

MORECAMBE manager Derek Adams was a happy man after his side came from behind to beat Grimsby Town 3-1 at the Mazuma Stadium.

Adams saw his side trail 1-0 at the break thanks to Matty Pollock’s 21st minute header but a brace from Carlos Mendes Gomes and a late goal from Adam Phillips saw the Shrimps claim another three points and maintain their play off spot.

Adams said: “Today was always going to be a difficult game. The weather conditions were terrible and Grimsby certainly had the better of things in the first half.

“They pushed forward and got a goal but we always knew that we would be better in the second period with the conditions behind us.

“We knew we would create chances after the break and that is what we did. I thought we were excellent. We know we have the talent in the team to create openings and we put them under a lot of pressure and scored three goals.

“It was great to see Carlos Mendes Gomes score twice because he works really hard. He gets into some great positions and he took his chances well and I think in the end we fully deserved the win.

"To have 34 points from 20 games is excellent and the aim now is to keep that run going.''
