Phillips: ‘We were unfortunate in the end.’

5 March 2022

Midfielder Adam Phillips says the Shrimps were unfortunate to leave Home Park empty handed after creating several big chances.

The Pilgrims found themselves ahead on 14 minutes when Conor Grant headed home from the back post, and Ryan Hardie made it two moments before the half-time interval.

Having registered the same number of shots both on and off target as Argyle, Phillips says the Shrimps were unfortunate to lose the match.

“I thought we played well, the team that was out there, and we were unfortunate in the end,” he said.

“We created a lot of chances but unfortunately, we couldn’t find that goal to get ourselves back in the game.

“We’re still creating the chances, now we’ve just got to keep going, keep getting bodies in the box and hopefully they’ll start dropping in and we’ll start picking up some points.

“We’ve got another game on Tuesday, a tough game, away at Bolton, but we’ll go there with confidence and hopefully we can get a result.”

Saturday afternoon’s fixture saw Phillips start his first game since Gillingham at home in the middle of February, and the midfielder says he’ll help the Shrimps out in any way he can.

Phillips continued: “I’m just trying to get myself into good areas, the manager asked me to play a different role today, a bit deeper.

“I thought I did alright, I got on the ball well, I’m doing the best I can for the team and whatever the manager asks me to do, I’ll do.

“I’ve just got to get my head down, keep getting the games and try and help the team as much as I can.

“You can see it with the lads, we don’t give up, we keep going to the end, like I say we’re still creating the chances, we’ve just got to put the final touch to it.”
