Bedeau says Bolton’s late equaliser ‘tough to take’

9 March 2022

Shrimps' defender Jacob Bedeau says Bolton’s late equaliser was tough to take given Morecambe’s performance on the night.

Cole Stockton netted his 19th league goal of the season to give the Shrimps the lead four minutes before the break, but a Jon Dadi Bodvarsson equaliser in the 94th minute meant the shares were spoiled.

Speaking after the game, Bedeau says his side can be pleased with how they performed, and they should apply the same level of performance going forward.

“To concede at the end like that was tough to take,” he explained.

“The boys played so well, so to concede at the end like that was obviously tough to take, but it’s a point in the right direction and we’ve got to take that kind of performance into Saturday.

“They put the pressure on at the end and we were holding out, that corner bobbles around the box and he [Bodvarsson] puts it in, it’s tough to take but have to take the point and move on.”

Morecambe remain in 21st position as it stands, though based on tonight’s performance, the Burnley loanee is confident the Shrimps can turn things around.

He added: “I’m pretty confident, we’ve got a very good team.

“We’ve got players on the bench, Jonah [Ayunga], Jon [Obika] and the people that came on today, the quality in the squad is there.

“I’ve been here since January, there’s been games where we think ‘how’ve we not won that?’ so we’ve just got to keep pushing, keep believing in each other, sticking together.

“I think we can get out of the situation we’re in, the games coming up are really important against teams that aren’t higher up in the table.

“Going into Saturday at home with our fans behind us, we’ve got to be positive about getting a result there, I think we’ve been very resolute and got a fair few points, draws, but hopefully we can turn those into wins at home.”
