The Gaffer and Nicky Adams Look Ahead to Cambridge United

1 April 2019

Both Ryan Lowe and Nicky Adams were frustrated with Saturday’s result, but were keen to insist that Tuesday is the perfect opportunity to get back to winning ways, as the Shakers entertain Cambridge United.

Ryan Lowe was keen for his players to make amends on Tuesday after Saturday’s loss and go on another unbeaten run: “I’ve said to the lads you’ve got to bounce back. Last time we lost, we went on a fifteen-game unbeaten run, so I’ve said they’ve got to go on a seven-game unbeaten run now because we’ve got seven games to play for, seven big games.” 

He was under no illusions that Cambridge won’t be an easy game: “Tuesday’s not going to be easy, we know that, but for us we’ve just got to worry about ourselves and put in a performance better than we did today.” 

Lowey also noted that our visitors on Tuesday may be boosted after what was only the second home defeat all season in the league: “They’re going to come here and see the result today and they’ll take positives from that, but on the other hand we’re going to take positives from where we need to be.” 

The Gaffer knows that his side will have to improve against Cambridge: “We need to be better than what we were today and if we are, then hopefully we can get the points.”

Nicky Adams also spoke to the press on Saturday and he reiterated that the team aren’t getting ahead of themselves: “It’s one game at a time, we’ve said it from day one. It is our game in hand, but it means nothing, we know what’s needed.” 

Our Vice-Captain was looking for an instant response like the Gaffer: “Cambridge will be a good side, we’ll do our homework on them over the next couple of days and we’ll bounce into Tuesday, that’s the way we are.” 

He also told us about how Ryan Lowe wants his side to be come Monday, highlighting the brilliant mentality that’s constantly being instilled in the squad: “The Gaffer has already said he doesn’t want anyone feeling down. I think the one good thing about this team and set of lads, is every time we’ve been beat this year, we’ve always come back with a good result and we’ll look to do that Tuesday.” 

Adams was also keen to stress that the team can’t let the result on Saturday affect them too much: “We’re very disappointed about today, but we won’t get too disheartened.” 

He also reminded everyone that we still control our own destiny: “The disappointment from today hopefully will spur us on for the next seven games. It’s still exciting, it’s still in our hands, and we can’t ask for much more than that. We’re looking for a response and I know that group of lads in there are looking forward to Tuesday.”
