Phillips: Take Each Game As It Comes

6 January 2023

Kieran Phillips admits the past two matches have given the side a lift, as Morecambe prepare to host Cheltenham this weekend.

The Shrimps would move out of the bottom four on Saturday with a victory and Phillips, who scored two of the five goals in the New Years Day victory over Burton, is looking forward to the upcoming match.

"It's been a great start to the year for us as a team, and it's something we want to build on," he said.

"We were clinical in both matches against Accrington and Burton, but probably more so against Burton on New Years Day. What matters is putting the ball in the back of the net, and we can take a great deal of confidence from that match, knowing that we can put five past an opponent at this level.

"We've had a number of matches this season where we could have scored more goals and got the win, but we end up drawing or even losing. It was good for us to get that opening goal and really relentless in our approach to go on and get the five in the end.

"We're hoping to use that as inspiration going forward and hopefully fly up that table."

With Cheltenham visiting the Mazuma Stadium on Saturday for another home fixture for the Shrimps, Phillips admits the side are looking for a third straight win, but acknowledges it will be difficult.

"We need to take each game as it comes and not think too far ahead," he said.

"If we do that, I think we've got a better chance of getting something from the match that's directly in front of us. We've played teams that are in and around us recently, and got the points on the board, so hopefully we can do that again this weekend."
