Recent performances have instilled a sense of positivity within the Shrimps squad, says Adams.
In their last two games, against Fleetwood Town and Bolton Wanderers respectively, the Shrimps have put in strong performances both on the road and at home.
Ahead of Tuesday night’s trip to the Abbey Stadium, manager Derek Adams admits his players are feeling positive.
“The players are in a really positive mood because, at home last week against Bolton, they put up a really good performance,” he said.
“The last game away from home was against Fleetwood, and we were really unfortunate not to come away from there with something.
“Going away from home on Tuesday night against Cambridge, they’re a similar club from the point of view they’re in and about us in the table and they’ve got very good support.
At the time of writing, the Shrimps sit three points and two places above The U’s in the table in 21st.
Mark Bonner’s men will themselves be looking to turn recent fortunes around, having won only twice since Boxing Day, though the gaffer admits his players are aware of the challenges which lie ahead.
“It’s a game we’re going to go there and try to win, we’ve got to a point in the season where we know what we’ve got to do to stay in this division,” he added.
“[A win] would mean we’d go six points ahead of Cambridge, so it is a six pointer to us; we know it’s a difficult venue to go to.
“They did well on Saturday against Portsmouth, but we’ve got a lot of talented players in our squad, you saw that on Saturday, we went toe to toe with Bolton and created a number of really good opportunities.”
