Adams says Shrimps understand the task at hand

17 April 2022

Manager Derek Adams says the Shrimps are well aware of what they must do to remain in Sky Bet League One beyond the end of the season.

After defeating Charlton Athletic on Good Friday, Adams’ side sit 19th in Sky Bet League One, three points above the drop zone and the gaffer is targeting another three points against Portsmouth on Easter Monday. 

With just three League games to go, the manager says his side understand what they have to do in order to survive the drop.
 
“It is extremely tight at the bottom of the division, we knew it was going to be difficult, we have three games to go and we understand what we have to do," he said. 
 
“The players have shown that fighting spirit on the pitch and the supporters have as well, they are willing us to get those points and it is up to us to go and get them. 
 
“We have to try and keep on winning football matches, there is no doubt about it, win more points against the opposition that are down there and that is what we are trying to do.”
 
 
Following on from Good Friday's victory, the gaffer says the togetherness within the Club can go a long way in seeing the Shrimps survive relegation this season.
 
He added: "We are looking forward to the game, another tough test in Portsmouth at home, they are a fantastic football club and I am sure after Friday’s win against Charlton will see us close to capacity at the Mazuma Stadium. 
 
“We have had three wins in such a short space of time as well as two draws that have really helped us, we have a group of players that are willing and wanting this football club to stay in League One.
 
“They have certainly given themselves a fighting chance, I think that we have a togetherness throughout the Club, that enabled us to get to League One last season and it is showing that we have quality within this squad.”
