Robinson's delight at second half performance

29 August 2021

Manager Stephen Robinson says their second half performance was enough to give them all three points against Sheffield Wednesday.

A change in formation unlocked the door for the Shrimps just after the hour mark, and Robinson says the side's performance was excellent. 

“We changed it to a back three, I thought there was too much space, there was too much distance between the midfield and the back four,” he said. 

“As soon as we went to that back three and our midfielders flattened off a bit, we were a lot more organised, I didn’t think they caused us too much problems if I am honest. 

“For a large majority of the second half I thought we were excellent, Cole [Stockton] lead the line brilliantly, he has been fantastic and has been since the start of the season.”

5,481 fans turned up to the Mazuma Stadium on Saturday, breaking a long-standing attendance record which was set back in 2013 against Newcastle United, and Robinson praised the fans for their continued support. 

“This is what people have waited for, all the hard work last season has led to this, the fans have turned up in their numbers and want to see games like this after not being here last season,” he added. 

“Their support was fantastic, I don’t think they realise how much of a difference they make - they push us when we’re not doing so well and that helps us make up that extra yard. 

“It is a brilliant day for the football club, but we can’t get too ahead of ourself, and remember just that, it is just one day.”
