Carlos Mendes Gomes believes Saturday's scoreline at Northampton was not a fair reflection of the game and the Shrimps' should see positives in the performance.
The Shrimps suffered their fifth consecutive away defeat at Sixfields despite positive performances at both Bradford and Northampton since the turn of the year.
"I believe that in the first half we had a lot of chances, but unfortunately we didn't take them and conceded in the process," said Gomes.
"The goal just before half-time was punishing, that's a bad time to concede and overall the score did not reflect the game."
Morecambe dropped to the foot of the table on the day, with Stevenage comfortably beating Cambridge United at the Abbey Stadium.
Gomes added: "Although we want to concentrate on ourselves, you have to look at the teams around you to see how they did and the Stevenage result was not nice to see at all.
"On the day I thought the performance was mostly very good and if we carry on playing like that, we will move forward and up the table."
