SHRIMPS’ boss Derek Adams says his side will be looking to build on their positive performance at Bradford City when they face Colchester at the Globe Arena on Saturday.
Morecambe went down 1-0 to the promotion-chasing Bantams on New Year’s Day but dominated the game for long periods with a display that Adams described as the best he had seen since taking over.
He is now hoping for the same positivity as the Shrimps look to record the double over the U’s this season.
He said: “Colchester have done really well this season and have got themselves into a good position where they are attempting to get out of the league automatically.
“From that point of view we know it is going to be a tough test for us but we have had a good week in training and will be looking to build on our really good performance at Bradford.
“We have had a bit of time to prepare for the game after a free weekend and the four new signings we have made in the window have had time to settle in.
“It is clear those signings have given us fresh blood and I think the players that were already here have upped their game as well which is always the reaction you want.
“The newcomers play in areas where I was particularly looking to strengthen the squad and we can look forward to them being involved at the weekend.’’
