Robinson: 'When fans watch football they want to be entertained.'

26 August 2021

Shrimps boss Stephen Robinson says the players have not lost belief in themselves and hopes the fans have been entertained by his style of play since joining the club.

Despite losing their last three games in league and cup action, the Northern Irishman has been happy with what he has seen from his team since the start of the season. 

He said: “We have a group of lads that are very comfortable on the ball, they press high up the pitch and when fans come and watch football they want to be entertained. 

“Ultimately we have to win football matches to stay at this level, but the performances and the organisation has been fantastic, we just have to turn those into wins. 

“There is a real belief in what we are doing here, we have a strong squad that can compete, you only have to look at the players that we have on the bench and in the stands, the more performances that we have like that, the better it is for everyone.”

Sheffield Wednesday are the visitors to the Mazuma Stadium on Saturday and come into the game without conceding a goal in Sky Bet League One thus far, and Robinson is looking forward to facing another side that came down from the Sky Bet Championship last season. 

“The games are certainly not getting any easier, but that’s what we are here for - all that hard work that the players put in last season has led us until this point,” he added. 

“These are the games the fans want to come to, there was a full house then and there will be another one Saturday, and we are really looking forward to it.

“It is a tough, tough challenge, they haven’t conceded a goal yet and we have to try and change that - we will be aiming to take points on Saturday and if we do that I think we will all be satisfied with how we’ve started.”
