Shaw: Being Ruthless Is Crucial

15 December 2022

Liam Shaw admits the side have been working on becoming more of an aggressive outfit, as Morecambe make the trip south to Plymouth this weekend.

The Shrimps head to Devon having not played a match in two weeks following the postponement of last weekend's match against Charlton at the Mazuma Stadium. Shaw, who has made 18 appearances for Derek Adams' side so far this season, has explained how the side have been working on the clinical side to their game during the past fortnight.

"We need to be more ruthless in front of goal and try and convert some of these draws into wins," he said.

"If we can take our chances more, then I think we will pick up more points, as we have shown we are in the majority of the matches we've played in so far this season. We've been going ahead in loads of games and setting the tempo as the aggressors, but have struggled to get that second and third goal to finish matches off.

"We're working on this in training every day, and hopefully we will start to see this come to fruition over the coming weeks."

Despite Saturday's hosts sitting in second place in the Sky Bet League One table heading into this weekend's fixtures, they have failed to register a league win since late October. Shaw, however, admits the Shrimps are solely focused on themselves.

"They're probably in a bit of sticky patch, but we don't really look at how other sides are doing," he said.

"It's all about us and how we play. It doesn't matter who we play - whether it's top of the table or in the relegation zone - our focus is on how we play. If we do our things right on the pitch, then we should be a good match for many teams in this league."
