Adams: We Look Forward To Playing Against Fleetwood

25 February 2023

Derek Adams says the Shrimps are eagerly anticipating Saturday afternoon's Lancashire derby.

It was a point a piece in August’s reverse fixture, where Arthur Gnahoua’s first half strike was cancelled out by Danny Andrew’s late equaliser.

The Shrimps travel to Highbury looking to build from Tuesday night’s win against Port Vale, and the gaffer says it’s a great opportunity to make ground on the teams above in the Sky Bet League One table.

“We look forward to playing against them, they’ve got a lot of good players in their side, over the years, they’ve built a fabulous football club,” Adams said.

“It’s a great opportunity for us to try and cut the gap between ourselves and the teams above us, we did that the other night against Port Vale, a great win for us, three points, and now’s our opportunity to try and catch Fleetwood.

“He’s [Scott Brown] got them playing well, I watched them against Sheffield Wednesday, they progressed in the FA Cup and have a huge game next week against Burnley.”

The Morecambe faithful descend onto Fleetwood in numbers, having sold out the full allocation of tickets, and Adams is expecting a strong atmosphere on the day.

"It'll create a very good atmosphere," he said.

"It's a tight ground like our own and the atmosphere, when it's packed, is very good; we've got a huge support with us, we've sold out our allocation and it's just a long the coast from us.

"We look forward to the game, the supporters were very vocal the other night, and that really does help the players.

"It's going to be a frantic game, because we understand how Fleetwood start their games, it's 100mph, so we'll have to be ready for that."
