Morecambe’s Andy Wright believes The Shrimps could have achieved even more this season after reaching their initial target of 50 points.

Jim Bentley’s side have achieved the mark usually considered enough for League 2 safety with time to spare but the versatile midfielder admits the dressing room are disappointed not to find themselves further up the table.

Wright said: “When you think of the budget and the size of the club it’s a real achievement to be where we are.

“It shows that we’re positive thinkers that we’re all slightly disappointed in a way.

“With the players we’ve got and the staff we’ve got I think we all wanted something a little bit more.”

The former Scunthorpe man admits it will take “something special” but hasn’t ruled out a late run at the League 2 play-offs.

He said: “I think the next three or four games are going to decide where we end up.

“It will take something quite special now for us to achieve the play-offs.

“But if we win the next two or three games we’ll be looking forward thinking, you never know, especially if results go in our favour.”

Any charge at the top seven will have to start with a good result against top of the table Gillingham, who visit the Globe Arena on Saturday.

Wright said: “Down at their place I rated them quite highly, they were a good side.

“They were very organised, another physical team who are very good at what they do.

“Martin Allen called us a “bunch of men” last time we played them but I thought they were organised so it’ll be a good test for us.”
