Away support will give the side a boost says McCalmont

19 November 2021

Midfielder Alfie McCalmont says the away support will give the team a boost when they head to Fleetwood Town on Saturday afternoon.

The Shrimps will be backed by more than 1,000 travelling fans hoping for a much needed victory, and McCalmont cannot wait to hear the noise from the packed away end. 

“I’ve seen we’ve sold a lot of the tickets for the away end so it’ll be good obviously having that away support and that will definitely give the lads a boost,” he said.

“Playing with a full away end, that’ll definitely give us the boost we need. Hearing the fans keeping us going throughout the game, it’s massive. 

“We are in a bit of a sticky patch but the fans stick with us and we’ll have to keep using that to keep progressing and get the results we need.”

The Leeds United loanee returns from international duty full of confidence after scoring twice for Northern Ireland U21s in their game against Lithuania, and the 21-year-old says that he is hoping to bring his goalscoring form back with him to club football. 

“It’s always good to go away and play for my country,” he added. 

“It’s a different type of football which I enjoy. It’s good that I don’t miss any games whilst I’m away. 

“I’m just looking forward to getting back now to the game on Saturday.”
