League One presents plenty of ups and downs says Adams

30 September 2022

Manager Derek Adams has confidence in his side's ability to compete, despite the up and down nature of League One.

With injuries to some of the players which he brought in over the summer, the gaffer has had to tinker with different formations since the start of the season, something that he says he will continue to do on a game-by-game basis. 
“We know where we are as a football club, we know where we stand and in this division, it is tough, you are going to have ups and downs,” he said. 
“We’ve lost 50 per cent of the games and we have drawn or won the other 50 per cent of games so that is something that we have change, draws into wins which will help us. 
“We have had a numbers of players injured such as [Ash] Hunter, [Max] Melbourne and [Caleb] Watts, who came in to play in a variety of positions, we have done well with the formations we have played in, we have to look at the opposition’s strengthens and weaknesses going forward as we always do.” 
The Shrimps face Accrington Stanley on Saturday looking to record their first win at the Wham Stadium since 2016, and Adams has praised the way Stanley have gone about their business over the years. 
“There is never a good time to come up against Accrington because we know what type of game it is going to be, it is a high tempo match, it is one that will go to-and-fro,” he added. 
“They have done really well to stay in League One over the years and we have aspirations to do the same as them, we did that last year and we want to do the same this year. 
“To be fair to them, financially, they have done very well.
"They have sold a number of players on and that has enabled them to recoup and enabled them to bring others in and that has been really good for them.”
