Shrimps must find a way to win says Wildig

1 April 2022

Midfielder Aaron Wildig says if the Shrimps are to remain in Sky Bet League One, they must find a way to win.

Morecambe are without a win since victory over then-League leaders Wycombe Wanderers at the Mazuma Stadium in January.

With seven games to go of the 2021/22 campaign, four of which are at home, Wildig says it’s important his side find a way to win.

“We’ve got four home games left, we’ve got to find a way to win as many of those as we can,” he said.

“We’ve got to look forward, there’s no point being negative, looking back, what’s done is done, we’ve got to put all our energy into the last seven games.

“I know it’s cliché in football, but you’ve literally got to take one game at a time right now and put all your effort into getting three points in your next game.

“It’s a seven-game season now, we’re still right in the mix, we’ve just got to do what we can from preparation to match day, and try and pick up as many points as we can.”

Looking ahead to Saturday’s visit of Burton Albion and the fixture provides a great opportunity to kickstart the last seven games with an important three points explains Wildig.

He continued: “You’ve got seven games to go, you’ve got target points.

“The next game is Burton, we need three points, we haven’t picked up three points in 11/12 games I think, so we need to win the game.

“We need to go out there and, like I said, win most of our home games between now and the end of the season, and that starts Saturday.

“I think the fans have been brilliant this year, I’ve been at the club six or seven seasons, I’ve played out there on a Tuesday night in league games where there’s probably not more than eight or 900 there if I’m being completely honest.

“This year, I think they’ve been excellent, they’ve stood with the team throughout the season, [it’s] been difficult over the last two or three months and they’re still coming in their numbers.

“[I’m] very grateful for their support and we’ll need it between now and the end of the season.

“It’s not going to be plain sailing, there’s going to be ups and downs between now and then, it’s how we react to it and as a football club, we’ve got to be in it together.”
