Shrimps boss looks ahead to cup tie

11 November 2012

Bentley set for Dale challenge

SHRIMPS' boss Jim Bentley says his side are looking forward to the FA Cup first round replay against Rochdale on Tuesday.
Bentley says his side will take a lot of positives from his side's 4-1 victory over Barnet into the replay at Spotland on Tuesday night and will wait until the final moment to see if Barry Roche, Will Haining and Jack Redshaw will be fit enough to be in contention.
He said: Barry is still feeling the effect of the knock he picked up in the first leg and both Will and Jack had slight calf strains so we didn't want to risk them on Saturday.
"We will assess them on Monday and give it as long as we can before we make any decisions but obviously the more players we have available the better for what will be a tough tie.''
Looking ahead to the game he said: "Rochdale showed at the Globe that they are a good side and I said after the game that I thought we were pretty lucky overall to still be in the cup because we were well below par on the day.
"We have another chance though to show what we can do now and there is a big prize being dangled in front of us with an away tie at Coventry so we wil be giving it our all.''
The prices for the game are £15 for adults and £10 for concessions. All Juniors (16 and under are £5).
