Shaun Miller opens the scoring against Barnet on Saturday.

The front man took his tally for the season to 14 in the 4-2 win over Barnet on Saturday as he continues to reignite his career at the Globe Arena.

The former Crewe, Sheffield United and Coventry striker had struggled for form and fitness since injuring cruciate knee ligaments while with the Blades at the end of the 2012.

The out of contract 28-year-old looks set to have plenty of suitors in the summer however having starred with The Shrimps this season and is coy on his future.

He said: “We’ll (Miller and the club) speak in the summer and see where we go from there.

“That’s all I can say really.”

His two goals against Barnet came in the opening eight minutes but from then on it was a frustrating afternoon for the front man as he went in search of a hat-trick.

Several chances came and went with one goal remarkably chalked off for offside as Andy Fleming tapped in a goal-bound shot from a yard out.

Miller said: “I’ve got Flemmo to thank for one of them (the missed chances)!

“I had a couple of good chances in the second half so I was disappointed I didn’t convert one of them but you can’t be too disappointed with two goals.

“It’s been a good season so far for me personally, one of my best goal returns, so hopefully I can add a few more and get a decent tally.”

The game was an eventful one with Barnet ‘keeper Graham Stack lucky not to be sent off for felling Tom Barkhuizen for Morecambe’s penalty before appeals for a second spot kick were waved away as a Kevin Elllison header appeared to hit the arm of a Bees defender.

Miller said: “It was very open.

“We got in many a time and it could have six or seven easily, particularly some of the chances we created in the second half.

“It was a great one to play in as a striker. The most important thing was the win and it gets an important three points on the board.”

The victory all but sees The Shrimps to League 2 safety but Miller insists there is still plenty to play for with a trip to Dagenham to come on Tuesday night.

He said: “We haven’t been picking up many points.

“We’ve had a couple of sendings off recently that have killed us.

“It’s been a massive uphill task. It’s just great that we’re back to winning ways.

“We want to kick on now for the remaining seven games and push our way up the table.

“We’re not really in amongst the relegation battle and we’re quite a way off the play-offs so we’ve just got to stick together and try and get as many points as we can.”
