Gaffer says Shrimps know what they need to do

21 October 2021

Manager Stephen Robinson says his Morecambe team are aware of what’s needed to turn their recent form around.

Robinson’s men fell to defeat against Cheltenham Town on Tuesday night in Sky Bet League One, and face league leaders Plymouth Argyle next time out on Saturday 23 October.

The 46-year-old is hoping his side will be ‘brave’ and ‘take the game’ to Ryan Lowe’s men at the Mazuma Stadium at the weekend.

“This three-game block, I don’t think we’ve played particularly well, I think we’ve been just okay, and just okay isn’t good enough at this level,” he said.

“We know what we need to do to change, we’re looking forward to Plymouth, I think it’s a great game to play in, top of the league, prove people wrong and show how good a team we are.

“Without being cavalier and leaving the pitch open, we need to go and take the game to Plymouth, we have to be brave.

“When we've done that, we took it to Ipswich, we took it to Sheffield Wednesday, we took it to Rotherham, albeit we didn’t win that game, but we have to be brave, I think we’ve got good, good footballers.”

Saturday’s fixture sees the Shrimps return to home territory for the first time since September’s 2-0 victory over Lincoln City, and the gaffer has reiterated the message that the fans really do play their part.

He added: “We’ve had a hard period now, which we always knew would come, and we’ll come back again, I’ve no doubt.

“The run at home with fans getting behind us, I don’t think they realise how important that is, we’ve got a really young, influenced by social media group that read things and hear things.

“The more positivity there is around the place, from everybody, from the board of directors down to the management to the players, it certainly does help those younger players and they’ve a massive part to play in the next seven games.”
