Morecambe boss Jim Bentley says his side will be concentrating on themselves when they make one of their toughest away trips of the season on Tuesday night.

The Shrimps visit much-fancied Rotherham and their new home the New York Stadium hoping to continue their run of three wins in four games.

“They are many people’s favourites for the title and in their new ground with a big crowd behind them they are a tough side to beat”, said Bentley.

“They have had a few poor results in recent weeks while their manager Steve Evans was banned from the touchline but he came back on Saturday and they had their best result for some time.

“Every game against a Steve Evans side will be competitive but we can’t think too much about them.

“We are on a decent run ourselves and we want to keep that run going for as long as we can.”

Bentley will be without striker Richard Brodie who will serve the first game of a three-match ban after his sending off for violent conduct against Southend on Saturday.

With Brodie’s suspension the Shrimps have recalled young striker Dan Parkinson from his loan spell at Vauxhall Motors.

Bentley said: “We are a bit short on numbers and Dan has done really well on loan, scored a few goals and got some valuable experience.

“He has done well in training and looked sharp and will now get the chance to show what he can do.”
