Delaney’s delight after opening Shrimps account

15 October 2022

Ryan Delaney said he’s glad to get off the mark for the Shrimps after scoring an emphatic equaliser against Burton Albion.

The defender’s 78th minute rocket from the edge of the Brewers’ box cancelled out Davis Keillor-Dunn’s 30thminute opener.

After netting his first for the Club, Delaney is hoping to push on and start finding the back of the net more regularly.

“First goal, it’s been a while coming,” he said.

“I’ve said that a few times recently, so I’m just glad to get off the mark now and hopefully [I’ll] pick up a few more.

“I won’t score another one like that again, I know that for sure, but I’ll take any goal, I just took a touch and saw there was space in front of me, I tried to hit the target and luckily enough it went in.

“We knew we needed a result today, I’m just glad it hit the back of the net and got us the draw.”

The Shrimps battled hard to come away from the Pirelli Stadium with a point, and Delaney wasn’t surprised his side came back from a goal down given the spirit within the ranks.

He continued: “That can’t be questioned for this squad.

“We all stick together through thick and thin, we know we’re going to need everyone this season and, as a group, we’re a tight knit group off the pitch and on the pitch.

“That showed today and will in the future as well.

“We need to build momentum for ourselves and get ourselves on a run because we know we’re good enough, but we don’t always have to play well to win football games.

“We’ve played well in a couple of games this year and come away with nothing, so I think we’ve got to do the dirty work a bit better and pull results out when people on the outside might think it wasn’t one of our best games.

"We need to start picking up results by doing so.”
