GOALKEEPER Tom King has told Morecambe they should be wary of a revitalised Newport County AFC side determined to right some wrongs following two woeful performances on the road.

The Shrimps head to Rodney Parade today (kick-off 3pm) for a showdown with an Exiles team smarting from back-to-back League Two defeats at Grimsby Town and Oldham Athletic.

After conceding four goals against the Mariners, County shipped five away to the Latics, following which boss Michael Flynn said he had 12 games left to save his job.

County host Morecambe this afternoon with the Lancashire outfit two from bottom in the table.

And while they have a 10-point advantage over basement boys Stevenage, Shrimps chief Derek Adams will be eager for three more points just to give them a little extra breathing space.

However, King feels that not having a Tuesday game this week has benefitted the Exiles players, with the extra training giving them a chance to prepare more thoroughly for Morecambe.

“It’s going to be a tough game, like the last couple have been, but it will be good to be on home soil and hopefully achieve a better result than what we’ve been producing recently,” he said.

“We know that we can produce a lot better than what we’ve shown in the last two games.

“The lads have been buzzing around in training this week and we’re ready to go, and ready to bounce back, that’s for certain.

“I’ve noticed a difference in the lads. We look fresher and livelier. Training on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday was bang on.

“We had a chance to really get our shape right and look at things and where they’ve been going wrong.

“I see a fresher bunch of lads in the dressing room, so Morecambe should be very wary of that.”

He added: “The main thing we took from both away games was that we can produce, and have produced, a lot better than that this season.

“We’re certainly not about to let our standards drop just because we’re coming to the end of the season.

“Now is the time to really kick on and never let our dream of achieving a top-six finish die.

“One thing that has been synonymous with the club is whenever they have a poor result they’ve always bounced back really well.

“We’ve achieved that in some respects this season, obviously two losses on the bounce has been very disappointing for the lads.

“Being at home and back in our usual surroundings, we should be able to achieve a better performance and result.

“As a club, we don’t point fingers at anyone, we don’t have a blame culture, and we all take responsibility for our actions, on and off the field, all the time.

“We need to raise our standards to where they were at the beginning of the season.

“We need to get back firing on all cylinders.

“It’s about righting some wrongs. A 9-2 deficit over two games is not something anyone wants or plans for.

“We want to get back to keeping clean sheets and hopefully stick a few in at the other end.”
