Morecambe boss sends ‘warning’ message to Chelsea ahead of FA Cup clash

Chelsea set to host Morecambe in the FA Cup third round at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

However, Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is keen on the game, even though he plans to rotate his squad for this fixture.

Meanwhile, Morecambe boss Derek Adams has vowed not to be intimidated by Chelsea and has urged his side to take advantage of any opportunity they get.

“Obviously without a doubt a team like Chelsea, whatever changes they make, will create a great deal of problems for any side,” said Adams.

“We will have to stick to the gameplan, but if we do that then we will also create opportunities for ourselves in the game. “The challenge then is that, when those opportunities come along, how clinical can we be in front of goal.

“Our players must appreciate the skills and talents that they have and understand that we can certainly pose a few problems. “So when we do cause those problems, it will be all about what we do with those chances.

“We’ve changed the style of play since last season, we have got a lot of attacking players who can create and score goals.

“That change has been great and I think it’s one the players have enjoyed. “It’s going to be tough of course up at Chelsea, but it should be a great day out and one we can enjoy and where we can be competitive too.”
