ACCRINGTON Stanley midfielder Piero Mingoia insists his parent club 'will be fine' as he left for Morecambe on loan.

Mingoia was a key figure in the side that reached the play-offs in 2016, but has found game time hard to come by since then.

The 27-year-old left Stanley on loan for two years at Cambridge United, but has failed to get in to John Coleman's plans since his return.

"They'll be fine I think, they'll pick up some wins soon and then you never know where that can take you," said Mingoia.

"They're definitely good enough to be towards the top end of that league.

"They've just been on a bit of a bad run, but that can happen to anyone. All teams go through that at some stage.

"Once you pick up a couple of wins it boosts confidence and then you can start building some momentum for the latter stages of the season."

Mingoia highlighted how he left Stanley for more game time.

"I left Stanley for more game time, that was the idea behind it all," stated Mingoia.

"I didn't play much in the first part of the season, so hopefully I can get some game time here at Morecambe."

Morecambe are currently in the relegation zone in League Two, Mingoia hopes he can help keep them in the football league.

"Hopefully, that's the aim. We know it'll be tough because we've got some tough games coming up.

"It's not just me, everyone will contribute to us being safe."

The midfielder said he's only thinking in the short term with this loan move.

"I'm just thinking in the short term really, I want to play well here, that's my main focus," added the 27-year-old.

"When it comes to the summer and my loan here is over, I'll go back to Stanley and then we'll see where I'm at."
