Adams: The Players Have Good Belief

21 February 2023

Derek Adams says his side are full of belief ahead of Tuesday night’s home clash against Port Vale.

The Shrimps boasted a nine game unbeaten run at the Mazuma Stadium ahead of Saturday's home loss against Peterborough United.

Desite defeat at the weekend, the boss admits belief is instilled within his squad.

"They've got good belief the players," he said.

"We've been on a run that's enabled us to get more points on the table, there's still a number of teams in the fight to stay above the line, and we're one of them.

"We've got to go into the game against Port Vale, we're at home again, be on the front foot, get at them and create openings, which we can do, we've shown that in the past here."

The two sides met on Boxing Day just under two months ago, and Adams admits the reverse fixture does come into his thinking ahead of the game.

He added: "We'll certainly look at the game and look at how it played out for us, we'll certainly look at that.

"We'll also look at the changes they've made in the January transfer window, we've obviously made changes as well and that does come into play.

"We're at home as well, so it's about creating those opportunities and exciting our home supporters again; It's up to the players on the pitch to do that, and the supporters feed off of that.

"If somebody has created a good openinig, scored a goal, put on a very good press, made a tackle, the supporters see the effort from the players, it's on the pitch, a lot of the time, the supporters respond to. 

"On the flip side, the supporters can lift the players before that happens because of the energy they can generate on the terracing."
