Adams: A Draw Is Fair

8 March 2023

The Gaffer admits a draw between Cambridge United and the Shrimps on Tuesday night was a fair outcome.

The hosts opened the scoring on 14 minutes through Jack Lankester before Cole Stockton netted an equaliser in the second minute of three added on at the end of the first half.

Both sides had chances to win it in the second half, though were unable to find the back of the net, and with either team coming close, the Gaffer believes a point a piece was a suitable conclusion.

“We could’ve got three points, so could Cambridge, so I think a draw at the end of the night is fair,” he said.

“I thought Cambridge started the better side, they came out very well and created a number of good opportunities; they got the goal with their pressure and deserved to get that goal.

“We changed shape, grew into the game and we were able to get the goal to make it 1-1, just before half-time, we could’ve mate it 2-1 with a great opportunity.

“The ascendency changed from Cambridge being the dominant team in that first period to us being the dominant team, and I think, over the night, yes we’ll take a point.”

122 Morecambe fans were in attendance at the Abbey Stadium, and Adams was quick to thank the travelling supporters for making the journey and backing the lads.

He added: "The supporters who travelled down from Morecambe, I'd like to thank them because it's not an easy journey.

"They supported us until the final whistle tonight and they'll be delighted to go back up with a point.

"I think for both sides it was [important not to lose], we'd have gone six points ahead of Cambridge tonight, but a point in the end was probably fair."
