Skipper’s plea to fans

MORECAMBE skipper Barry Roche has pleaded with fans to get behind his side after another disappointing weekend.

Saturday’s defeat to Oxford means it is eight games without a win for the Shrimps who are still just six points off the relegation zone in League 2.

As well as calling for more support, Roche admitted that Morecambe’s recent run of poor results was a worry. But he said there was enough experience in the side to get the Shrimps out of trouble.

He said: “We are in a fight now and no-one is going to say any different.

“The ironic thing is that we have played quite well in recent games and not won matches and that has made it all the more frustrating.”
