Morecambe manager was happy enough with their Stevenage point
Morecambe boss Derek Adams said his side had to take the positives from Saturday’s 2-2 draw at Stevenage.
The Shrimps had looked set to take three points but a goal by Luke Norris 10 minutes from time earned the home side a share of the spoils.
Having fallen behind early in the first half, Morecambe had got on terms through Toumani Diagouraga before Cole Stockton put them in front.
Adams said: “Overall it was a good point away from home.
“We know Stevenage have picked up a lot of draws this season and it is a difficult place to go to.
“We started the game very well and created a number of good early opportunities.
“Against the run of play Stevenage got a goal that was deflected into our own net.
“Then we upped the tempo again and got a good goal from Toumani Diagouraga after a great cross from Stephen Hendrie, and then we got a good second goal when John O’Sullivan played in Cole Stockton, who provided a really good finish to put us ahead.
“We were in total control of the game at that time but the second half was a different story.
“Stevenage were the better team in the second half and caused us trouble.
“We didn’t start the second half well and they had a couple of chances.
“We dealt well with their pressure for large spells but eventually they got their equaliser when we could have defended the situation a lot better.”
