Robinson can't fault players' application

18 February 2022

Manager Stephen Robinson says he cannot fault the players’ application in recent weeks and has praised their energy and enthusiasm.

The Shrimps were unlucky not to pick up three points on Saturday against Gillingham, and Robinson is adamant that the team’s luck will turn around soon. 

“I didn’t expect there to be four-and-a-half thousand people to be here against Gillingham, if I am honest, the weather was not the best either, so it just shows they see how hard the boys are trying, that the fans are turning out for them,” he said. 

“The form they are playing in and more importantly, what they are giving to the football Club in terms of energy and enthusiasm, and that is a given for me with this squad. 

“The Gillingham game sums up our season, we have done things to a point and not finished things off but I will back this team 100 percent when they give me the energy and enthusiasm that they have done over the past 10 games."

The Montgomery Waters Meadow is the destination on Saturday as the Shrimps move closer to another matchday in Sky Bet League One, and Robinson says three points against Shrewsbury would pull them into the relegation dog-fight. 

He added: “Shrewsbury is an opportunity for us, we have beaten them at home, they are a big, strong, physical side who put a lot of balls into the area. 

“Ryan Bowman, I worked with at Motherwell and sold him, so, we know their threats, it is a big, big game for us. 

“If we could get a point there it would be good, three points bring Shrewsbury right into the mix with us and it is another body fighting for survival.”
