Positives to take from Stanley draw says Robinson

29 January 2022

Stephen Robinson says there were positives to take from their 2-2 draw with Accrington Stanley.

Despite being two goals up, the Shrimps were pegged back by Stanley just before the break and Robinson admits that his side must defend situations better if they are to pick up all three points in future. 

“It feels when you are 2-0 up, you should be disappointed that you did not take all three points, in the end, we had the better chances, but a point is a positive because we haven’t done that much this season,” he said. 

“Cole [Stockton] had a good effort saved and then we had one roll across the line in the last minute of the game, I thought we defended well when we needed to. 

“But we needed to defend their goals better, their second goal is not a free-kick which leads to their goal but we have to defend it better, but overall a point away from home is positive.”

Jonah Ayunga netted a double for the Shrimps, taking his tally up to five for the season, and Robinson praised his strikers' performance and says simplifying his game is paying off for the forward man. 

“I thought Jonah and the front three as a whole were class, Cole [Stockton] and Arthur [Gnahoua] when they got the ball into their feet were very good, but Jonah was outstanding,” he added. 

“He nearly finished it off with a chance at the end that could have sealed his hat-trick, but he scored two good goals. 

“We have worked with him to make sure he shoots more and to make his game a bit simpler, we are now starting to see that pay off I feel.”
