JIM Bentley has urged fans to create a carnival atmosphere in front of the cameras at the Globe Arena on Sunday for his side’s FA Cup clash with Sheffield Wednesday.

The Shrimps’ boss says he wants supporters to mark the occasion in style as Morecambe look to shock the Owls in the game being screened live on ESPN.

Bentley said: “Whatever happens this is a great occasion for the club and I want everyone to celebrate it.

“I really want the fans to get behind us and make a big noise. I would really like to see a wall of red on the terraces and as many flags as possible around the ground with everyone out for an enjoyable day.

“Even now I remember the atmosphere the fans created when I was playing in the play-off semi-final against York and I am convinced that they helped us get through that tie.”

Bentley says he is looking forward to taking on Gary Megson’s high-flying side but admits it will be a difficult game.”
