Greg Leigh has urged fans to keep the faith after a run of patchy results in Sky Bet League One.
The defender was part of the side that lost 5-0 to Sunderland AFC on Tuesday night and has said that the team have been working hard to rectify that result.
He said: “My message to the fans would be to keep the faith, we are going to be putting everything we’ve got in to making sure we do not have a repeat of the last two games.
“Tuesday was nowhere near good enough, we lose as a team and there are a lot of areas to improve all over the field.
“It has been disappointing and we are all upset with how things have gone recently, but it is time to get past that and make sure we put it right.”
The Shrimps sit just above the drop zone heading into a vital run of fixtures over the festive period and Leigh says the side have the quality to distance themselves from the relegation zone.
He added: “Everyone knows the Christmas period is a busy period, it makes peoples seasons and it is vital that we stay out of the bottom four.
“It is majorly important that you don’t drop into it at any point, you want to start that period out of it and hopefully gather some momentum to climb the league.
“We have the belief ourselves that we can navigate this period successfully, and I fully believe that we have the right amount of characters in the dressing room to turn things around."
