Weir: "We have to pick ourselves up and move on."

24 September 2022

Jensen Weir believes the Shrimps must pick themselves up and move on following defeat against Cambridge United.

It was his goal which opened the scoring on 12 minutes, but Jack Lankester equalised 20 minutes later before substitute Harvey Knibbs sealed the points for the visitors moments before time.

Whilst the feeling of late defeat is raw for the Shrimps, Weir says the lads must focus on the next match.

"We're going to have to move on, forget about it quickly and move on to the next game," he said.

"Once we scored, we had a bit of control, the first half-an-hour I thought we had good moments.

"We could've done a bit more with the ball going forward, but I think defensively, we were too open and left a gap around the penalty spot, so we need to work on it."

The 20-year-old made 24 appearances in all competitions for Mark Bonner's men last season.

Whilst it was nice to score against his old side, Weir admits it counts for nothing when you come away empty handed.

"It's nice to score but it means nothing when you don't get the points," he continued.

"[The dressing room] was down, not very positive as you can imagine really, not great, but we're going to have to pick ourselves up and move on.

"I think we just need to be a bit more ruthless and a bit more horrible in a way, a bit gritty to get through the games really."
