Bentley glad to be back at home

BOSS Jim Bentley says he is glad to be back at the Globe this weekend.
The Shrimps have picked up some good results at home in recent weeks and after games at Coventry and Wycombe Bentley is happy to be facing two Globe games before Christmas.
He said: "The lads are really glad  to be playing at home again because we have begun to get a bit of a head of steam at the Globe recently and gone on a decent unbeaten run. We've scored a few goals and looked really solid at the back and if we can keep that form up and get a couple of wins we would be well on our way to our first target of 50 points.
"After those two games we will be halfway through the season and a couple of good results before the hectic Christmas period would be a great boost for us.''
Speaking on the Oxford game, which kicks off at the earlier time of 1pm, he added: "It certainly won't be easy because although Oxford are not having the best of runs lately they do have some quality players and an excellent manager in Chris Wilder and we will need to be at our best. We haven't been at our best in the last two league games but we have picked up four points and that is what is important.''
Bentley will have Andy Fleming available again after he missed the trip to Wycombe through suspension and is hoping that Barry Roche will be fit to start after he was forced off at the weekend with a back injury.A
Andy Parrish will also be available again after missing the trip to Wycombe.
