LAST WORD Marcus McGuane on Lincoln

Man of the Match left frustrated as U's look for a reaction against Morecambe

17 August 2022

An outstanding individual performance wasn't enough to please midfielder Marcus McGuane as the U’s lost 2-1 to Lincoln City last night.

Marcus was almost everyone in the ground’s Man of the Match, driving his team forward, but in the end being two goals down to the Imps was just a step too far for the U’s.

“Obviously I want to play well but the main thing is always for the team to play well and get results. And that result is a bitter pill to swallow” he told iFollow

“We can’t keep giving teams two goals leads. We have spoken this season about not conceding so many goals. Last season we conceded a few but were scoring a lot. This season we’re not scoring as many so we need to work on it all, keep practising every day, work on it as a team. If we do that then our fortunes will change.

“The goals will come, the clean sheets will come. We have top quality players up top and at the back and I think it’s just about gelling. The players in attack breathe goals and want to score them and that will mean we come through and start taking our chances.

“The second half was one way but it was just one of those days where we couldn’t quite crack it and get a second goal.

“But now we look to Saturday and trying to get a positive result. The brilliant thing about football is that games come at you thick and fast so we will come in on Wednesday, dust ourselves down, talk about the game and then from Thursday we move on to Morecambe.”
