Adams: 'It is good to be back.'

26 February 2022

Derek Adams says ‘it was good to be back’ following his return to the Mazuma Stadium for the first time since his departure last summer.

The 46-year-old was re-appointed as Shrimps boss on Thursday morning following Stephen Robinson’s departure, and the Scotsman says the Club has a homely feel to it. 

He said: “I had a great day, the supporters from the start of the game were magnificent, it was nice to be back. 

“To get a point, I think we can be happy with, I think we were a danger and a lot more resolute after the break, I haven’t had much time to change things but I thought we were a threat on the counter-attack. 

“I am delighted with the people that I have come back to, it is football club that is homely, it looks after their own and I am delighted to be back here.”

The Shrimps had to settle for a point in Adams’ homecoming game against Ipswich Town, but Wildig’s header on the 59th minute was a throwback to last season said the gaffer. 

He added: “I just thought at half-time these two [Adam Phillips and Aaron Wildig] could help us and they did, defensibly and offensively, it was a well worked goal in the end.

“I am delighted for them, Wildig, during my time has scored a lot of goals and Adam Phillips, like he did last year provided the assist. 

“Ipswich are a good side, they had not conceded a goal for a long time and were after a club record I think, they had some really good opportunities in the match, and Trevor Carson made some excellent saves."
