COLE STOCKTON | We’ll Show People What We Can Do

5 March 2021

Derek Adams’ side face 12th place Carlisle United on Saturday afternoon.

The Shrimps have played 15 games at home so far this campaign, with eight wins, four draws and only three losses coming at the Mazuma Stadium.

Striker Cole Stockton, who made 12 appearances and scored one goal for the Brunton Park club in 2018, will be hoping to get one over on his former employers.

Speaking of his time with the Cumbrians, the 26-year-old said: “Looking back at myself then, I felt like a kid.

“Now I just feel like I’m on a totally different wavelength.

“I’ve just matured so much as a person, as a player as well and I’m still striding to push myself even more and to keep testing myself.”

Chris Breech’s side have enjoyed a positive campaign to-date, securing 43 points from 28 games, though a series of postponements have seen the Blues fall down the table with four games in hand.

“They’ve done well, the games they’ve missed have killed their momentum a little bit,” Stockton said.

“I know a couple of the lads there, George Tanner and Lewis Alessandra who we were with last year and they’re both good lads.”

The Huyton-born striker, who has netted seven times in all competitions so far this season, is fully expecting a fiery encounter against Saturday’s opponents.

He said: “It’s a little bit of a derby isn’t it; it’s going to be a little bit heated I’d like to think so.

“Us as a team, we’ve got to earn the right to play which I’m sure we will.

“We’ve got good, strong lads who are up for that little battle when some of the opposition don’t fancy it.

“Once we do that, stamp our authority, we’ll go and show people what we can do.”
