Adams: Worthy Of A Point, If Not More

29 October 2022

Derek Adams was delighted to see his side fightback and claim a point in the 1-1 draw at Wycombe Wanderers.

The Shrimps dug deep at Adams Park to claim a point for their efforts, with youngster Adam Mayor grabbing the goal in the final ten minutes to make it all square.

“I thought we were excellent and were deserved of a point, if not more,” Adams said.

“I think that says a lot that we have come to a place like Wycombe and we are disappointed to come away with a point. They are usually a side that is very dominant at home, but today we created the better opportunities. We hit the post twice in the game, Adam Mayor has a chance right at the end to snatch the win and the way we generally played and passed the ball was really pleasing.

“We had overloads all over the pitch, which enabled us to have good moments of play, so to come away with a point is a little frustrating, but sometimes you have to be pleased given we came from behind at a tough place to play like Wycombe."

Adams was keen to stress his delight for youngster Adam Mayor, who made an instant impact in the game, coming on as a late substitute and scoring the all-important leveller.

“I love Adam because he’s got running power and real ability,” he said.

“He wants to score goals and wants to run down the sides and take the ball in-field. He’s done ever so well when he’s come into the first-team, and is someone the rest of the under18’s should look up to.

“He’s put a tremendous ball into the box with his left foot, and I think the goalkeeper gambled on going to the back post, and it’s gone in. To score such a good goal as your first in league football is fantastic, and we’re all pleased for him.”
