Adams commends Shrimps' team spirit

23 August 2022

Derek Adams has praised the Shrimps’ team spirit after his men knocked out Rotherham United to progress to Round Three of the Carabao Cup for the third time in the Club’s history.

Arthur Gnahoua’s 72nd minute strike was enough to sink the Millers on home soil, and Adams says the side’s togetherness will be one of the biggest advantages this season. 

He said: “We are delighted, to come away to a Championship team and win, to limit them to very few opportunities on target with the strike force they had is very pleasing. 

“The team spirit is excellent, everyone can see that we didn’t have the strongest bench in the world, we had to call up four Academy kids, as we have a bit of illness and injury in the squad. 

“The side’s togetherness and understanding of the game has been very good, in and out of possession, the work rate throughout the team had to be perfect against a very good side.” 

Adams has his eyes set on a ‘big club’ in Round Three of the competition and says it is a pleasure to work with the players everyday. 

He added: “We have looked really strong of late and I am just delighted for the players, they are a very good group, I enjoy working with them and giving them information. 

“I enjoy seeing them take that information on board and that makes my life very enjoyable as a football manager. 

“They are improving and that is important as the weeks go on, if we can get a cup run and a big team in the next round, that could be really advantageous for us.”
