Shrimps look for first Wycombe win

2 August 2013

Boss looks for promising start

THE Shrimps kick off the season at Wycombe tomorrow looking for their first ever win over the Chairboys.
Jim Bentley's new look side start their campaign at Wycombe for the third time since joining the Football League looking to break a league hoodoo.
Several players could make their debuts for the Shrimps as Bentley looks for a solid start to the campaign.
He said; "It is a tough first game without a doubt but I am more interested in us and where we are at the moment.
"There have been a lot of promising signs in pre season and the new lads have settled in superbly.
"Everyone is in really good shape and there is competition for places and that is good.

Before that goals from Andy Kerr and Keith Scott sealed a 2-0 win in the first ever clash at Adams Park back in a F.A. Trophy second round replay in February 1993. 
The previous five meetings have seen the hosts win three and a couple of draws. Scott McGleish and John Sutton wrapped up another 2-0 victory in the first ever league meeting in December 2007. Eight months later the sides shared the points in a 1-1 draw on the opening day of the 2008/09 season with Lewwis Spence scoring for the Blues.
  The last meeting in December 2012 was a memorable one as Dean Morgan bagged a brace and Joel Grant was sent off. Richard Brodie pulled one back before substitute Jack Redshaw headed home a last minute equaliser for the Shrimps!
Another 2-0 win followed on the opening day of the 2010/11 campaign with Scott Rendell`s penalty and a late solo-effort from Jon-Paul Pittman wrapping up the points.
