Letheren says Shrimps feel at home in League One

27 September 2021

Shrimps number one Kyle Letheren says the Shrimps have acquitted well to life in Sky Bet League One and hope to continue their fine form against the Imps.

After starting the opening game of the season, Letheren found himself on the bench until he received a re-call against Crewe Alexandra. 

Since reclaiming the number one spot, the 33-year-old hasn’t tasted defeat, a feat that he hopes Morecambe can continue against Michael Appleton’s Lincoln City.

“I think we’ve acquitted ourselves [in League One] really well so far,” he said.

“No team has come to our place and rolled us over, and that’s certainly not going to be the case on Tuesday night.

“We know they’re [Lincoln] a good team, but we also know what we can do, and that’s what we’re going to concentrate on.

“I think they’re a very good footballing side, they try to play the right way, we’ve prepped today for them and know exactly what’s coming our way, so we’ll go into the game full of confidence, and hopefully we can put another three points on the board.”

Whilst the former Chesterfield-man believes his goalkeeping colleague Jökull Andrésson was unlucky to lose his position in the team, he says he is loving being back in-between the sticks.

Letheren added: “I’ve loved it, I’ve been pushing hard in training to get back in, and I think the gaffer put me back in for a bit more experience.

“Was it a bit harsh on Jökull, maybe so, but was it a bit harsh on myself at the start of the season, maybe so as well, this is what you’ve got a strong squad for.

“Me and Jökull are going to go toe-to-toe all season, it’ll be done in the right heart, and hopefully that can only benefit Morecambe.

“Whoever plays the best keeps the shirt, we’ve got a great bond together, most keepers do, and that’s no different here.”
