Wildig happy with a point

26 February 2022

Midfielder Aaron Wildig says the Shrimps can be happy with a well-earned point against Ipswich Town on Saturday afternoon.

Wildig netted his second goal of the season with a diving header in-front of the Bartercard Stand, and the 29-year-old says despite him scoring the goal, the point is down to the excellent goalkeeping display of Trevor Carson. 

“When you get to the 87th minute you have to try and see the game out, but if you look at the game as a whole, you have to take the point,” he said. 

“They are a great side, they rotated the ball in the middle of the pitch very well and they overload the areas out wide. 

“I thought Trev was a deserved Man of the Match, I thought he was excellent between the sticks that helped us get a point, on another day they would have been disappointed not to win.”

With the Shrimps battling hard against relegation, Wildig says himself and the rest of the team need to start chipping in with goals to take the pressure off striker Cole Stockton. 

“I know that I have got goals in me the way Derek [Adams] sets up his team, so between now and the end of the season, we are all going to have to chip in [with goals],” he added.

“I’ve got to chip in, Phillo [Adam Phillips] will have to chip in, the lads in midfield lads Shane [McLoughlin], Alfie [McCalmont], we are all going to have to get a few. 

“It will hopefully take that pressure off Cole, we know what quality we have in the team and it is up to us to make sure we go and get them goals that keep us in this division.”
