Shrimps prepare for Wednesday test

Morecambe are back in action this evening as they welcome Sheffield Wednesday to the Mazuma Stadium in League One.

The Shrimps - who are unbeaten at home in league and cup so far this season - go in search of their first victory of the season in League One.

Kick off is 7:45pm, and there’s full match commentary on Beyond Radio on our FM and DAB+ services from 7:30.

Manager, Derek Adams, says he’s expecting a tough encounter. 

“They’ve got quality throughout the team,” Adams said.

“We all know them very well because they’ve played in the Championship, some of them have played in the Premier League as well.

“They’ve got some real quality players; Barry Bannan is a prime example of that, to have the likes of Gregory, Windass as well in that area, they’ve got a very, very good squad.

“They’ve got international players in their squad and that’s why they’re favourites for promotion.

“They come here, which is always a difficult venue for any team to come to, and as a Club, as a team, we’re looking forward to it.

“It’s what we do on the day, we’ve got to get at them and cause them problems, which we will do.”

Morecambe drew 2-2 away at Bristol Rovers back on September 3, before last weekend’s break following the passing of Her late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.

Derek Adams added: “We took a rest, I think it’s important we respected the wishes of the EFL, we did that.

“We came back in to train this morning [Monday] to prepare for the game on Tuesday night, we’re looking forward to it because it’s another tough match for us, playing against one of the top teams in this division.

“It’s been relentless, it’s been a really difficult start from a games point of view, in the month of August, there was nine games.

“We were going to go back-to-back, Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday, that wasn’t going to be easy, we’re away from home on Saturday against Forest Green, so I think having the rest has helped us and can get us ready for tomorrow night’s match.

“The support we’ve had, to have 2,800 Season Tickets holders, is magnificent.

“People turning up on the day and spending their hard-earned cash to come and watch two good teams in Morecambe and Sheffield Wednesday, they’ll probably get an exciting match.”
