Leigh relishing Railwaymen return

20 September 2021

Left-back Greg Leigh says he’s excited to return to the club that gave him his first professional appearance when the Shrimps visit the Mornflake Stadium on Tuesday night.

The 26-year-old spent the 2014/15 season on-loan at the Cheshire side from Manchester City, making 38 appearances in all competitions, providing two assists, and scoring a goal which would go on to win the club's Goal of the Season award.

Leigh says he is looking forward to his return to the Alex and is hoping the Shrimps can bounce back from recent results.

“It’s going to be a weird one!” he said.

“It’s where I started off my professional career anyway, so it’ll be interesting to see how everything’s panned out and that kind of thing at the club but I’m looking forward to it greatly.

“Going back into the stadium will be different vibes, obviously in the away dressing room this time, but it’s a nice feeling, hopefully there’s still people at the club from when I was there so I can say a quick hello.”

Stephen Robinson’s men go into the game in search of their third league win of the season, and the Jamaican international is confident that the side can find their form.

Leigh added: “We had a meeting and went through all the good stuff we’ve been doing with regards to our defending from open play, regards to creating chances.

“It’s just small margins and small things that we can change, that’s what we’ve been working on.

“In the dressing room, people are still staying positive because I don’t think we’re playing poorly or having people cut us open, it’s just small margins that are costing us the games at the moment so hopefully we get them right and turn things around.”
