Ayunga thrilled to be back

23 October 2021

Striker Jonah Ayunga said it feels great to be back in the starting XI following a 1-1 draw at home with league leaders Plymouth Argyle.

It was former Bristol Rovers man who opened the scoring on six minutes with a neat finish from the angle into the far bottom corner, before the visitors equalised six minutes later through Danny Mayor.

After a freak injury sustained in Morecambe’s Carabao Cup victory away at Blackburn Rovers, Ayunga says it feels great to be back starting games and scoring goals.

“It feels ages since the Blackburn game,” he said.

“I’ve had the Hartlepool game in between, but today felt like the first time I was back playing how I want to play.

“Before that, I felt a bit rusty getting back to full fitness, but now, after that, I feel like I’m back where I want to be playing.

“It was a nice lay off by Phillo [Adam Phillips] I think it was, and I just hit it across goal, found the bottom corner, [I’m] happy with that.”

Argyle headed into the game on the back of a 13-game unbeaten run, and Ayunga feels as though the Shrimps certainly held their own against Ryan Lowe’s men, and could’ve walked away with all three points.

He added: “[I’m] just happy to get the point, but we were on them second half, I feel like it could’ve been three.

“We would’ve taken a point before the game, but after, there’s a little bit of disappointment in the changing room.

“Possibly the last three games, performances haven’t been there, we’ve gone away from what we showed today, but other than that, all our performances have been good, there’s been no team’s that have really blown us out the water.

“We’ve just got to keep performing the way we did today, and the league position will start to reflect the performances I think.”
