Lifumpa Mwandwe reflects on his team’s 2-0 victory over Morecambe FC.
Forward Lifumpa Mwandwe scored the second goal in the 86th minute to secure maximum points for Shrewsbury against Morecambe; joining captain James Rowland on the scoresheet.
“It felt good. My goal drought has ended. My confidence has come back up just by getting one goal, so more goals now.”
Asked on whether he thought it was a relief when James scored the opening goal, he said: “Not a relief because we knew we were going to get the goals.
“We were the better side. It was just when it was going to happen for us really and it happened early in the second half; it was good.”
Goalkeeper Jack Atkinson was praised by Mwandwe as he saved a penalty which denied Morecambe from getting the equaliser, and helped Shrewsbury maintain the lead.
“It was very good. We’re not going to be hearing the end of it from him though.
“But no, it was a very good save and it kept us in the game as well so you’ve got to give credit to him for winning this match as well.”
Shrewsbury face Wigan Athletic away next in the League and the goal scorer shared what they might expect.
“Good football. High intensity and definitely a battle. That is something we’re prepared to do, especially when we’re playing away from home.”
Lifumpa Mwandwe also reflects on his individual performance against Morecambe.
He said: “First half a bit quiet, second half a bit louder. Obviously, there are things that we need to look over from this game, because these are the types of games where I try to get knocked off, so we just need to look over it and see what I can do in the next game when we play them away.
“I can be better and a lot sharper for the team.”
