Adams impressed with the way his side adapted to Huddersfield's changes

12 July 2022

Manager Derek Adams says his side did well to cope with two highly-impressive XI's in their 3-1 loss to last season’s Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Finalists Huddersfield Town on Tuesday afternoon.

The Shrimps had to face two different XI’s fielded by opposition boss Danny Schofield, and Adams was impressed with the way his team adapted to the changes throughout the game. 

He said: “I was delighted with the performance, I thought the structure of the team was excellent and you can see that they have a good understanding of each other. 

“To come here and play against two teams who had 45 minutes each, both of which saw a lot of very good players, I am pleased with how we adapted to that. 

“You have to remember that this team were pushing towards the Premier League at the end of last season, physically they were very good but I thought we dealt well with a lot of different aspects throughout the game.” 

Midfielder Caleb Watts missed out on the action due to the injury he sustained against Macclesfield FC last time out, but the gaffer is confident that he will be back for the weekend’s trip to Chester FC on Saturday. 

“I think a lot of people would have thought that we would have come here and got beat by a lot more than we did because of the outfit that Huddersfield are,” he added. 

“It just shows you the quality that we have in the team in the way that we played, all the new signings got a run out, except for Caleb [Watts] who was a bit tight in the lead up to this one. 

“He will hopefully back for Saturday, we still have a bit of business that we want to do on the transfer front, from that point of view we will have comings and goings between now and the start of the season.
