Greg Leigh: 'We're focussed on three points.'

4 March 2022

Defender Greg Leigh says the Shrimps are focussed on getting as many points as possible and is hopeful the luck is turning at the Mazuma Stadium.

Leigh, who has been a mainstay in the starting XI this season, was pleased with a point against Ipswich Town at the weekend, and is adamant that the tide is turning for Derek Adams’ side. 

“I think we have had more control over the games, and so it’s good for us to look at those performances and say we were dominant, and try to emulate that and carry that on,” said Leigh.

“We can guarantee that other teams have had luck, where they probably shouldn’t have got points that they got, you want to maybe ride your luck so to speak, and make sure we get those three points.

“We didn’t manage to do that, but coming out with a point against a team like Ipswich, we were pleased with.

“Like I said with regards to the luck, look at Bolton, a bit of bad luck there, look at Gillingham, a bit of back luck there, so taking the point from Ipswich was probably a bit more evening out the luck that we’ve had.”

The Shrimps travel to Plymouth Argyle on Saturday, and Leigh says they have eyes on getting all three points and climbing out of the relegation zone at the weekend.

“Of course, every game is massively important now, we’ve got to be focused regardless of whether the trip is down the road, playing at home or obviously trips that are a bit further, like Plymouth,” he added.

“[We're] just trying to stay focused and get something out of the game, go into the game being positive.

“Obviously it is a mini league with regards to the bottom teams but it’s just about getting as many points as possible.

“Six points is huge if you look at the table, so back-to-back wins would be massive and that’s what we’re aiming for.”
