Watts: We're In A Good Place

2 January 2023

Caleb Watts admits there is a real feel-good factor that has developed in the Morecambe dressing room after the back-to-back home victories over the festive period.

The Shrimps put five past Burton Albion on New Years Day to take them off the bottom of the League One table, with Watts scoring two in an impressive display from Derek Adams' side.

"I think we're in a good place at the moment, particularly after the past two matches" he said.

"We knew how important these home matches in-between Christmas and New Year were going to be, and we're really pleased we've come away with maximum points from the past two games, but we need to now quickly focus ourselves on Cheltenham this coming weekend to back it up even further.

"It's a great feeling to get these two wins under our belt, but we know it doesn't matter where we are now - it matters where we are come the end of the season."

Watts made an instant impact on New Years Day, coming on as a half-time substitute and going on to grab a brace, but admits he could have got even more.

"I could have had quite a few to be honest, but it's a nice feeling to get on the scoresheet," he said.

"I've been crying out for that first league goal for the Club, and now I've got two in one match, I'm hoping I can push on and have a good year. It was a great feeling to do it in front of the home crowd too, who were fantastic on the day, so hopefully we sent everybody home happy after that performance."
