Morecambe boss Jim Bentley says consistency will be the key to his side’s ambitions this season.

After two wins and a draw in their last three games Bentley says his side are finally showing the sort of form he knows they are capable of but need to stay on top of their game to maintain their push up the League 2 table.

The Shrimps’ boss said: “I have said all along that this is going to be a very competitive league this season and everyone has the ability to beat everyone else.

“There is an amazingly fine line between success and failure and we are on the right side of that line at the minute.

“We have conceded only one goal in three games and are creating chances and the longer we can keep things that way the better.

“It’s all about taking more of the chances that come our way and staying switched on for the full 90 minutes and keeping our discipline and if we do that we have a side that can match anyone in this league on their day.”

Bentley says his side face a tough test on Saturday when in-form Southend visit Christie Park before a difficult first trip to Rotherham’s new New York Stadium next Tuesday.

He said: “Southend are doing well and in Britt Assombalonga they have a young lad who is scoring goals for fun.

“Southend are a big club at this level but we have done well against them in the past and I will be looking for us to repeat that success this weekend.”
