Adams looking for Shrimps shocks

7 October 2022

Derek Adams says the Shrimps must pull off shocks against the big sides in the division.

Saturday’s opponents Ipswich Town currently sit second in Sky Bet League One on 27 points, one behind league leaders Plymouth Argyle.

After taking over as manager in February, the gaffer led the Shrimps to victory over strong opponents, such as Burton Albion, Oxford United and Charlton Athletic, on their way to League One survival.

Whilst Adams is fully aware of the task at hand, he says his Morecambe side must find a way to shock the big teams in the division, like they did towards the back end of last season.

“That’s what’s got to happen,” he said.

“I think we’ve got to win games that shock other teams, and that’s what we’re going to have to try.

“We did that towards the end of last season, and before that as well, we had a number of shocks along the way.”

Adams’ first game back at the Mazuma was a 1-1 draw with Kieran McKenna’s men.

Ahead of Saturday’s game, the manager admitted he believes The Tractor Boys are one of the strongest sides in League one.  

“They’re a fantastic football club,” he added.

“I think they had 28,000 there on Tuesday night against Cambridge United, they’re one of the best teams in the division.

“We’ve got a really tough task, but that’s any Saturday in League One.

“You come up against really competitive teams, it’s no surprise to us.”
