BOSS Jim Bentley praised his side’s togetherness after their vital win over Forest Green on Saturday.

Goals from Rhys Oates, Aaron Collins and Alex Kenyon took the Shrimps eight points clear of the bottom two as they sealed their first home win since December and their first double of the season following their 1-0 victory over Forest Green in November.

Bentley said: “It was a great result for us all.

“We haven’t won at home for a while and we have lost the last two.

“We shouldn’t have lost the (Yeovil) game but we’ve bounced back in front of our own fans.

“We’re desperate to do well and we’d touched on certain things, not only with the ball but without the ball.

“It was very similar to what we did at their place when they had something like 75 per cent possession but you have to give people the respect they deserve and we’d worked on how they play.

“Sometimes you have to find a way of winning; sometimes you come up against teams who handle the ball better than you and you have to do something else.

“We found a way and I was very pleased with how they carried the information we gave them.

“We scored three goals and kept a clean sheet; I think two of their best chances were down to us first half.

“We’ve got to tighten up at times but while it was a smash and grab down there, we deserved the points today and it’s been a great day for us all.

“We have another big game on Tuesday (against MK Dons) and we have to try and back it up with another win.”
