Jim Bentley says his side have found themselves on the wrong end of the “fine dividing line”
SHRIMPS' boss Jim Bentley says his side have found themselves on the wrong end of the “fine dividing line” after two successive 1-0 defeats.
Speaking after the defeat at Wimbledon he said: "We’ve won games this season where we’ve just come above that fine dividing line and it’s other way now.
“Wimbledon got the all important goal on Saturday but we played some good stuff and had chances so I’m disappointed to lose the game but there’s plenty of positives there again. I thought we defended well at times, we’ve just got to make sure we get back to winning ways as soon as possible.”
Bentley is now hoping his charges can bounce back against Northampton at home on Saturday and at the same time maintain their unbeaten home record.
He said: “Northampton are one of the bigger clubs and invested and then they go and get beaten by Accrington.
“You look at Wimbledon, they hadn’t won three or four and then they go and beat the league leaders Burton 3-0 before beating us.
“It is very up and down, very unpredictable and we’ve got to make sure we have a good week and keep believing in ourselves, keep working hard and I’m sure we’ll get back to where we want to be.
“It’ll be a difficult task but it’s one we’re looking forward to.”
