SHRIMPS’ boss Jim Bentley says his sights are on a fourth successive home win when they face Grimsby at the Globe Arena this weekend.

Wins over Forest Green, MK Dons and Crawley have seen the Shrimps hit real form at the Globe and Bentley is keen for that record to be extended on Saturday against a side Morecambe beat earlier in the season.

He said: “We are going all out for a win because I want us to keep the home record going.

“Three points would be massive and hopefully end all talk of us being sucked back into the relegation fight while also taking us closer to the sides currently above us which include Grimsby and Cheltenham, our next two home opponents.

“I really want us to end the season strongly and finish on as many points and as high up the table as we possibly can and that starts this week.

“Grimsby are not in great form and we need to go into the game full of confidence. We played some great stuff at their place and picked up the points and after beating Forest Green home and away it would be great to get another double.

“We have put in some good performances of late and we have more players coming back into contention so things are really positive at the moment and I want the feel good factor to continue.’’
