DEFENDER Sam Lavelle said he is still disappointed that the Shrimps didn’t pick up three points against Port Vale on Saturday.

Lavelle said he was sure the Shrimps were set for victory before a controversial Port Vale goal sparked a late rally from the visitors.

He said: "As the game went on we felt more and more comfortable with how they were playing.

"They had the wind in the second half and put us under a bit more pressure but even then Mark (Halstead) had nothing to do really.

“Myself and Steven Old just kept telling everyone to keep things tight and we thought we were destined for the win and another clean sheet to be honest.

“To concede the first goal the way we did was disappointing to say the least. As a defender you pride yourself on clean sheets so to work on a set piece like we do and to be punished for it was annoying.

“Everyone did everything right so to see that the goal was given was annoying to say the least.’'

Looking ahead to the weekend trip to high flying Lincoln Lavelle said he is expecting a tough game.

“Lincoln will be tough we all know that. They are very direct and strong up front and the way they play means we will have our work cut out.

“But we often perform better against the top teams and that is what we will be aiming for on Saturday.

"Our away form is up there with the best of those in the league over recent weeks so we go there with nothing to lose.''
