SHRIMPS’ boss Derek Adams was full of praise for his side after their 2-1 defeat at Salford.
Adams said: “That was the best performance since I came to this football club,” he said.
“We were thoroughly outstanding for the first 40 minutes and had Salford on the rack.
“I was delighted with the players because we have come to a team who have just beaten Bradford 3-0 and for them to be worried about us shows you how far we have come.
“You do not need money, you need good recruitment and hungry players and that is what we had tonight.
“I’ve never seen a management team, director of football, first-team coach and manager be like they were on the touchline, they were nervous as we passed them off the pitch.
“We are a right good side, a really good footballing side and we did not deserve to lose tonight. End of story.
“We entertained our supporters. We passed the ball, we played, we created chances. If they didn’t have Ash Hunter they do not win the game, end of story.”
