We Want To Win

1 April 2016

Boss Jim Bentley says he is determined to see his side end the season on a positive note.

Despite being 12 points clear of the bottom two going into this weekend's game with Barnet Bentley says the Shrimps still have to make sure of their own League 2 future with a win tomorrow going a long way to doing just that.

He said: “It doesn’t matter what we play in whether it be training, the little competitions that we have or on a match day – we want to win.

“There’s still work to be done.

“People just look at it and see York aren’t winning games and I know it’s 12 points with eight games to play but it only takes a freak run of results and one of those teams to go on a run and they can soon reel you in,

“We’re in a decent position at the moment but it can soon change in football with a couple of results.

“We’ve got to get our own house in order and not rely on anyone else. We want to finish the season strongly.”

Looking ahead to the game against the Bees he said: “They’ll be a different challenge to us again. 

“They’re quite a direct side. They’ve got a long throw and big (John) Akinde up front has been one of the top strikers in the division.

“It’s going to be a difficult game. We’re at home, we’ll look at one or two little things where we can freshen the team up and hopefully get back to winning ways.”

Barry Roche is available again after serving his one match ban for being sent off at Orient. Alex Kenyon will be available to face Barnet after having his red card against Plymouth rescinded. Charlie Bailey could also come into the squad after being recalled from his loan spell at Kendal.

Adam Dugdale is still out with a foot injury and there is some illness going around the dressing room.
