Robinson delighted with team performance against Argyle

23 October 2021

Manager Stephen Robinson praised his side’s performance after they earned a 1-1 draw against league-leaders Plymouth Argyle on Saturday at the Mazuma Stadium.

Jonah Ayunga opened the scoring in the 6th minute, however the visitors struck back six minutes later through Danny Mayor who stabbed home following a goal-mouth scramble.
 
Robinson’s men pushed on for a winner in the second-half, although they couldn’t find a second goal and the points were shared.
 
 
“I thought we were excellent, probably our most complete performance of the season,” Robinson said.
 
“The way we passed the ball was back to what we do.”
 
Saturday’s result came after three straight defeats in League One and the Shrimps responded by putting in an impressive performance against the high-flyers. 
 
“You’re going to lose games at this level but you have to put performances in and we haven’t done that, we haven’t been ourselves, we haven’t pressed properly, we haven’t passed the ball,” added the Shrimps boss.
 
“I thought there were some outstanding performances, I don’t think there was a bad performance throughout.
 
“But what we did, we took the game to them, we had real belief, we pressed and we didn’t look like a side that had lost three games.
 
“They’ve done brilliant this season [Plymouth], they’ve got a real good shape and system behind them, they’re consistent with their selection but I think for the neutral watching that today nobody would have told you who was top of the league.”
 
The Shrimps boss was full of praise for goalscorer Ayunga: “He’s still on his way back from surgery.
 
"To give us, I think it was 75, 80 minutes he was outstanding.
 
“He was one of many good performances.”
