MORECAMBE aim to maintain their superb start to the new season as they prepare for the visit of Bradford City on Saturday.

The Shrimps climbed to second in the League 2 table on Saturday with their fourth successive win and boss Jim Bentley is hoping that feat will be rewarded by the biggest crowd of the season at the weekend – with no Premier League or Championship football due to the international break.

He said: “We have had two home games now and it’s fair to say we have been disappointed with the crowds to date.

“We all know Bradford will bring a big following on Saturday and it is always a game that has a great atmosphere and I hope our supporters get down in big numbers to watch us.

“The lads have certainly done everything that has been asked of them so far and deserve the support.

“The football has been good to watch with nine goals in the last four league games and I’m sure anyone who comes on Saturday won’t be disappointed.”
