Gaffer aims to put on an impressive performance against Plymouth
Micky Adams has said that his team will rest and regroup ahead of this weekend’s game against Plymouth after losing at home to Fleetwood yesterday.
Adams admitted it was a below-par performance following impressive on-the-road displays against Rotherham United and Dagenham & Redbridge, but underlined that they will be moving on by aiming to put on an impressive performance at the weekend.
“I thought we were second best throughout the game. It was a tired performance and we looked jaded,” said Micky following the game. “We started the game reasonably well and had a couple of decent chances and Tom will be disappointed he’s not stuck one of those away. We were average.
“It’s easy for me to come in here and make excuses that football managers use. The simple fact is that we went up to Rotherham and down to Dagenham, we’ve played a home game against Fleetwood and maybe the travelling had some bearing on it. Maybe I should have looked at the team selection, but we looked a confident side down at Dagenham and played reasonably well. So I stuck with the same eleven and it didn’t work.”
Adams suffered a blow early in the game when he lost defender John McCombe with a knee problem.
“John has tweaked his medial knee ligament so we will assess that and see what we have to do. It’s a bit too early at the moment to make any decision on it. We need to let it settle down and assess it.
We’ve lost a game of football and I’m hoping that in terms of damage, that isn’t going to knock us too much. We are struggling here at home and I don’t think I can say that we’re not because the results are there for everyone to see. We need to regroup, have a little bit of rest and start again. Hopefully we will be better against Plymouth.” “I don’t want to talk about individuals because I thought as a team we under-performed today. I’m not going to take anything away from Fleetwood as I thought they were excellent and played very well.
