Jacob Bedeau has reiterated the importance of the fans and how much difference their support can make for the Shrimps.
After winning their last three at the Mazuma Stadium, Morecambe return to home action with Joey Barton’s Bristol Rovers the visitors on Saturday.
In those three wins, the Shrimps netted nine and conceded just one, and defender Bedeau says the support from the fans can be the difference.
“The support we get here is top notch, the fans always get behind us and it obviously always helps,” he said.
“Even last year, some of the games here, they were behind us then and they’re still behind us now.
“It’s massive for us, if you’re 2-1 [up] like we were against Cheltenham, it’s almost like they’re blowing the ball away from our goal when we’re defending that side, so it’s always really helpful.
“We’ve got to think this is our fortress and we can beat anyone here, they’re a good team, they’ve got really good players so it’s going to be a tough one, but we’d like to think at home, that’s where we’re going to make it count.”
Players and staff from The Gas recently took part in a head shave to support team mate Nick Anderton who is undergoing treatment for cancer.
The Shrimps have benefitted from a solid team spirit so far this season, and the 23-year-old feels it's the same in the Rovers' camp.
"Obviously I pass on our best wishes to him and we hope he gets better," Bedeau added.
"They've got a good team spirit, I know one of the players who was there and he said they were really pulling together.
"They've had a good season, their first season back in League One, so they're going to be a tough test, but we have to come through these tests to stay in this league, and that's what we want to do."
