The Opposition View - Morecambe

The Opposition View - Morecambe

In the wake of yesterday's 1-1 draw at Morecambe, here are some views on the game from the Shrimps' manager Jim Bentley and a selection of their fans.

"It was a proper game of football, a real tear up between two sides who gave their all," said Bentley, speaking to ClubCall

"It was always going to be a battle, but we matched them all the way."

"The only disappointment is that we didn't hold on to win the game."

"Kevin Ellison scored another cracker and we had some real bad luck at the end with their equaliser."

"They threw that many balls into the box that it was probably inevitable that one would drop for them."

The Morecambe fans were happy to avoid a 14th home defeat of the season.

"A scabby ricochet goal to equalise. If we didn't have bad luck, we'd have no luck at all."
