Liam Gibson has called for the Shrimps to become more consistent in order to improve results.
Following encouraging first-half showings against Ipswich Town and Harrogate Town recently, Gibson says the Shrimps must maintain those levels of performance for the entire 90 minutes.
Recent spells show the effort and capability is there to the 25-year-old, but it’s about keeping it going for longer spells in matches.
“If we can improve the consistency, the first half against Ipswich we were very good,” he explained.
“Even the first 20 minutes against Harrogate the other night, we were very good, and then you can see as soon as something doesn’t go our way, the confidence just drains out of us.
“As a player, when you’re going through bad patches, automatically you’re overthinking everything, at the minute as a team, we’re overthinking everything and we don’t want to make mistakes.
“We need to stand up, be counted, and start to change things.”
After spells in and out of the side last campaign, featuring more regularly is a delight for Gibson, who has 18 appearances to his name in all competitions so far this campaign.
The defender is hoping his knowledge and experience can help the Shrimps turn their fortunes around.
“From a personal point of view, I’m delighted to be making this many appearances,” he added.
“Most places I’ve been have been in relegation fights, so I know what it takes, and I know what we have to do as a team to change that.
“I think we are all working hard, we’re not going out on the pitch to lose games, no player does that, I think at the minute, we just need to find more consistency.
“I go out on the pitch all the time and I feel lucky to be still playing, which is obviously a bonus, but at the minute when results aren’t going our way.
“If we can tweak things to where we can get the consistency and improve the quality, I think we can turn things around.”
