SAM LAVELLE | We Just Have To Keep Doing The Right Things

18 February 2021

Skipper Sam Lavelle believes the Shrimps deserved more against Bradford City midweek and is looking forward to the short trip to Barrow at the weekend.

Speaking after the defeat at the Utilita Energy Stadium, Lavelle said: "It was a game where we feel as though we had the better chances, I think a point would have been fair overall but it's another game that's passed us by.

"We've missed a few chances and been punished for it. We have got to be a bit more ruthless. As a team we have to be better in front of goal, because although it's a cliche, goals change games.

"We conceded two soft goals, meanwhile Kyle hasn't had a save to make, so on another day we take our chances and win the game."

The Shrimps travel to the Progression Solicitors Stadium to face local rivals Barrow AFC this weekend after falling outside the play-off positions in the week.

Goal difference separates the Shrimps and Exeter City who sit in seventh place, with only one point between them and Salford City in fourth.

Lavelle added: "It's a big month, we have loads of games and one or two wins gets you back up there so there is no need to panic, we just have to keep doing the right things.

"We've played Barrow and beaten them earlier in the season so we'll go there with confidence on Saturday and look to do the same again.

"It's a shame the supporters can't make the trip up the road, they have a new manager and will be up for it so it should be a good game."
