Cooney calls for Shrimps to turn performances into wins

18 February 2022

Defender Ryan Cooney says it’s time for the Shrimps to turn recent positive performances into wins going forward.

Recent results have seen Stephen Robinson’s side pick up a point at home against Bolton Wanderers and Gillingham respectively as well as a narrow defeat to Lincoln City on the road.

Despite not picking up maximum points, Cooney says the positives are there to take moving forwards.

“We go into games where, finishing them, we think ‘how have we not won that game?’ he said.

“Now we need to keep turning our performances into wins hopefully and we’ll be fine by the end of the season.

“We just have to keep taking the positives from the games, and how we’ve been playing throughout all of them.

“I think, bar the 20 minutes during the Lincoln game, other games we deserved to win on other days, but that’s just football for you, you need to keep taking the positives into the games coming up, leading up to the end of the season.”

Next up for the Shrimps is Shrewsbury Town, the side that Morecambe beat in our first home game of the season, and the 21-year-old says if the team perform to the best of their ability, they can take points from anyone in Sky Bet League One.

He added: “If we go out there and perform to our best like we know we can, we can take points off any team in this league, and that’s what we just need to keep doing now.

“If we do get a couple of wins under our belt in these next couple of games, I think we’ll be fine come the end of the season.

“We are being positive, we’re all going into each game with positive mindsets, thinking we can get something from the game.

“My tonsils are feeling a lot better now, I’m just coming into the team recently again and hopefully I keep performing and doing well for the team.”
