Robinson pleased with clean sheet

18 December 2021

Shrimps boss Stephen Robinson was pleased to keep a clean sheet against Fleetwood Town on Saturday afternoon.

It was honours even at the Mazuma Stadium and Robinson was full of praise for the three central defenders who kept the Cod Army attacks to a minimum. 

“We defended very well, we kept a clean sheet something we haven’t done for a long time and I thought the back three were outstanding,” he said. 

“Ryan McLaughlin, Anthony O’Connor and Liam Gibson, we had a great chance with Cole [Stockton] to go and win it, you expect him to take. 

“I think we are capable of passing the ball better, we have to find that right balance but we take the result as a positive one as we have some players out with injury at the back.”

Striker Jonathan Obika completed another 60 minutes as he battles back from injury, and Robinson has been impressed with Obika’s application in recent games. 

“Jon [Obika] is still finding his feet, he is getting the minutes in and he will be a very good signing for us when he gets them minutes,” he added. 

“Another 55/60 minutes under his belt in a really competitive game, it was quite fast and furious, what you could see of it anyway. 

“But he will be sharper after this game and the Portsmouth game, and I think we are all looking forward to seeing him go forward from here.
