Shrimps boss Jim Bentley says his side will be going all out to end their goal drought when they face Coventry City at the Globe Arena on Saturday.

The Shrimps bowed out of the FA Cup when they failed to score for the 11th time this season in a 2-0 defeat at Shrewsbury last week and with just 15 goals in 20 league games Bentley is the first to admit his side need to do better in front of goal.

He said: “We know where our problems lie and we have continued to disappoint in the final third of the park.

“Overall our football is decent and defensively we look pretty solid and have a decent record when you look at it.

“But we know where we are struggling and the final-third stuff is killing us.

“We haven’t been helped by a lack of training facilities because of one thing or another.

There are days when we can’t get on grass and have to concentrate on gym work and DVD work when we all know we need to be working on things on the field.

“When we do get on grass we work a lot on finishing.

“There are always shooting drills from all different angles and work on combination play and there have been a lot of signs where we look like we can get in, in most games, but it’s just not happening.

“We encourage the lads to take shots from all angles because that is what teams do against us.

“We have two or three players on four or five goals but we need more and we know we need to get better in that department.”
