Gaffer says his side deserved a point

16 August 2022

Manager Derek Adams says his side were unlucky to not come away with at least a point against Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday night.

The Shrimps are still searching for their first win of the season after Conor Bradley’s first-half effort was enough to hand the Whites all three points, and Adams says his team were organised throughout. 

He said: “I think we looked very organised, tactically we were very good because Bolton have beaten Wycombe Wanderers here 3-0 in the past, and they didn’t have to many opportunities in the game. 

“We were unlucky with Ryan Delaney’s header in the second-half which went past the upright, [Farrend] Rawson had a header on goal as well. 

“This is a difficult league, for us in this moment in time, in that forward area we are not getting that right pass at the right time. You have to remember we are a new team and we are four games into the season.”

Max Melbourne was stretched off in the second-half after going down injured, with Shrimps boss Adams unsure on the severity of the defender’s injury. 

He added: “We are not sure yet [on what the injury is] but he was taken away on a stretcher and we are going to asses what the injury is. 

“We have Courtney Duffus out for the season who picked up an injury while on loan at Stockport [County] last season, so with them two out, we are weaker. 

“We were the team that looked like we were going to do something in the final 15 minutes or so, they were taking their time trying to soak up the pressure, but I am happy with the way my lads played.”
