SHRIMPS' boss Jim Bentley says his side are determined to end their Accrington hoodoo at the Crown Ground on Tuesday evening.
The Shrimps are still searching for their first ever Football League victory over their near rivals and Bentley says he is keen to finally get one over James Beattie's outfit.
He said: "As a player and as a manager I've seen some terrible times against Accrington and it is about time we got a victory over them.
"They are a good side and have some good players who give their all and it is always a difficult game. They've had some good result as well in recent week and no-one shoujld ever underestimate them..
"But we should go into the game with confidence after picking up seven points from nine and hopefully we can earn the bragging rights for once. The hammering at Plymouth a couple of weeks ago seems to have helped everyone regain focus and we are all keen to go on another run now until the end of the season.''
Andy Fleming is still out as he serves the second of a two match ban for picking up 10 yellow cards and Stewart Drummond remains a doubt after injuring his toe on Saturday in the draw at Dagenham.
