Boss makes plea for big turn out

19 September 2013

Time to back us says Bentley

BOSS Jim Bentley is appealing for fans to back his in form side as they look for a fifth successive League 2 win when they meet Dagenham at the Globe Arena on Saturday.
Four wins on the bounce have seen the Shrimps become the shock outfit of League 2 at the moment with Bentley desperate to see more fans through the gate on Saturday.
He said: "We have won four games on the bounce and are unbeaten at home in the league so far and the lads deserve the support.
"They are working their socks off for the club and giving it their all and it is a bit of a case of if people don't support us when we are doing as well as we are doing when will they?
"We are doing well but I still think there is a lot more to come from us yet because I don't think we have played as well as we can do in any of the recent games. We have played well in patches but what we have shown is a tremendous spirit and togetherness and that is carrying us through.''
Bentley will be hoping to have Andy Fleming and Marcus Marshall available again on Saturday.
Fleming was a late absentee after slicing his foot on a glass in a freak hotel accident on the eve of the Newport game while Marshall's hamstring injury will have hopefully cleared up.
Bentley said: "We were short on numbers on Saturday and it was a blow to lose Fleming after his two goals at Southend the week before.
"We had trained all week with him integral to the system we were setting up with so to lose him in such a way was hard. 
"He cut his foot badly on the glass and was in a lot of pain but should be OK for this weekend.''
