Morecambe boss Jim Bentley looked to the positives after his side's goalless draw with Bradford on New Year's Day.

The stalemate means The Shrimps are now unbeaten in nine in league and cup at the Globe Arena, despite being without a League 2 win in five.

"We're unbeaten since Plymouth on September 22 and in those nine games we've only conceded three or four goals," said Bentley.

"Credit where credit's due we seem to be very hard to beat here. We knew we'd have to be strong and resiliant and work hard because Bradford are a good side.

"The conditions were difficult, it's windy and the pitch isn't playing great so it wasn't going to be a football spectacle but what was good was the great atmosphere and both sets of players going at it.

"It wasn't pretty but it did make for an eventful game.

"We stay unbeaten, it's a clean sheet, there's plenty of positives but we need to get a couple of three points on the board."
