ADAM PHILLIPS LOOKS AHEAD TO MORECAMBE TRIP

20 October 2022

The midfielder previewed our trip to the Mazuma Stadium on Saturday, where Phillips plyed his trade for a couple of seasons with the Shrimps.

ON LIFE AT OAKWELL SO FAR

"I've settled in well. I've had a few games under my belt. Signing on the deadline day was a bit tough, because the lads have already got going.

"But I've just been working hard in training, getting myself up to match fitness playing in the Papa John's and things like that. But yeah, I'm feeling good and I'm ready to go whenever the manager needs me."

ON COMPETITION IN THE REDS SQUAD

"I'm looking forward to getting my first start. The lads have been doing well, they've made it harder for me to get in.

"I came in here a bit late, it was already the start of the season. There's obviously a lot of good players here, so it's harder to work your way into the team. The lads that have been playing in my position have been doing really well - they're good players. I feel like all the midfielders we do have bring something a bit different to the table."

ON MORECAMBE

"I've played at Morecambe, it's a tough place to go. They're at the bottom of the league, but that doesn't mean anything really.

"They've got a good fanbase, they stick behind them. In this league, every game is tough. We've got to go there with the mentality that it won't be an easy game. They played Ipswich at home a couple of weeks ago, who are flying at the minute, they only just scraped past them. 

"It won't be an easy game. We'll have to go there with the performances that we've been giving away from home recently."

ON HIS TIME AT MORECAMBE

"There's still quite a few players there, it is still the same manager. I know a few of the lads that are still there - they're a good group. They stick together, even when they're at the bottom. I don't think they've ever been relegated from the league.

"It'll be a tough game. I don't think the lads have ever played at Morecambe, so I'll have to tell them what it's going to be like. It won't be as easy as the league position says."
