Boss's postponement thoughts

2 February 2014

Bentley can understand decision

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley said he could see just why the referee called off Saturday's game at Accrington.
Bentley said: "Some refs would stop it, some wouldn't and you just have to get one with it. It's one of those things.
"You turn up and you want a game of football and both sets of fans will be disappointed but the pitch was getting worse and you could see puddles and it was hard to get the ball down to pass.
"It was becoming silly and obviously we weren't pushing to stay on being down to 10 men. Having said that we were looking quite solid and on the attack when it was called off. We had had the better chances of the game during the game and it was always going to be tight."
Bentley has had a good week with the acquisition of right-back Sean Beeley and loan addition Jamie Devitt, while star winger Jack Redshaw signed a two-year deal.
"It has been good, we have been after a right-back for a while - it's a specialist position - so we are pleased to have Sean with us," said Bentley.
"Jamie did well for the 56 minutes against Accrington and obviously to have Jack Redshaw on a two-year deal is good news for us. We have had to wheel and deal but we are happy."
