Bedeau: We More Than Matched Bolton

5 March 2023

Jacob Bedeau says the Shrimps stood up to the challenge of Bolton Wanderers really well.

While the spoils were shared, both teams had chances to claim the points with big opportunities in the final third for either side.

With Wanderers currently sitting fourth in the Sky Bet League One table and targeting a play-off spot, Bedeau feels the Shrimps withstood the challenge of the opposition.

“They’re a good side, so I think we more than matched them, we can take the positives out of that and move on,” he said.

“It was a bit like an old boxing match where tackles were flying in, it was going from end-to-end, so it was a really tough game.

“We’d have liked to snatch all three [points], but we knew they were going to be a tough side to play against.”

As well as carving out several big chances, the Shrimps defended resolutely throughout the game to keep Ian Evatt’s men at bay.

Reflecting on Morecambe’s defensive display and clean sheet, Bedeau was impressed with the team’s overall work rate.

He added: “I think we worked really well, I think the whole team had that passion and desire to defend and keep the ball out of the back of the net.

“There was a few good blocks, Shawsy [Liam Shaw] right at the end took one on the head, Gibbo as well, so it was good.

“Hopefully we can take that into Tuesday, and the rest of the games coming up, to stop goals going in and get a few in at the other end.

“The changing room is one of the best I’ve ever been involved with, the spirit is there, the boys are together, so there’s no reason we can’t go and put a run together and get ourselves out of the relegation fight.”
