Morecambe manager's pride in players' Ipswich Town performance
and live on Freeview channel 276
The Shrimps were beaten 2-1 at the Mazuma Stadium on a day when injuries and suspension meant Adams could only name five substitutes for the League One match.
Nevertheless, they led through Kieran Phillips at half-time, after which goals from George Edmundson and Lee Evans handed three points to the visitors, who also hit the woodwork three times.
In response, Morecambe saw Dylan Connolly have a goal contentiously ruled out for offside before Cole Stockton missed a late chance to level.
Adams said his team gave their all and were unfortunate not to gain a reward for their efforts.
He said: “We’re disappointed not to take anything from the game.
“Over the 90 minutes, I’m proud of the players. I thought it was an entertaining game, it was probably one of our best performances of the season.
“I thought we put in a magnificent effort, the 11 and then the substitutes coming on helped us as well. I was just delighted with the players.
“I think we took the game to Ipswich. We started on the front foot and we got ahead from a set play; a great ball in and Kieran Phillips was able to put us one-nil ahead.
“We pressed Ipswich all over the park, the second-best team in the league at this moment in time, and they didn’t like it.
“We’ve shown we’ve got some really good players who will enable us to move in a positive direction.”
