Stockton says faith within squad is important

8 April 2022

Shrimps’ striker Cole Stockton says faith is key at this stage of the season with only five Sky Bet League One games remaining.

Derek Adams’ men have taken maximum points from the previous two matches which saw Stockton score his 20th and 21st League goals of the season against Burton Albion and Oxford United respectively.

With another challenging fixture against Cambridge United on the horizon, the 28-year-old has called for his teammates to keep up the faith ahead of a vital stage of the season.

“You’ve got to have that faith, you’ve got to,” he said.

“We haven’t been good enough so far at all, and it’s starting to change now at the right time, the last two performances here have been incredible from our point of view, we’re actually putting it to the teams.

“Burton at home had ten men and Oxford, they were a very good side, they tested us, if it wasn’t for Trevor with that save and how we defended our box as well, it could have been a different game, but it’s paid off for us.”

With only 450 minutes of football to play between now and the end of the campaign, Stockton says recent performances could help push the Shrimps towards safety before the final day.

He added: “Ideally, we want to go into the last game and know we’re safe.

“We don’t want it to come down to the last game, but like I say all the time, as long as we apply ourselves in the right way, which we have this week, then we’ll be ok.

“If you’d have said at the start of last week, you’ll take six points, we would have snapped our hands off, we’ve still got Cambridge away on Saturday and we’re hoping to get more.”
