Morecambe boss Jim Bentley says his side will be doing all they can to find their form at home when they face Cambridge at the Globe Arena on Tuesday evening.

After a number of home defeats, Bentley says he needs his players to show more in front of the home fans.

He said: “For one reason or another we haven’t got things right at home this season and that is really disappointing.

“We are not the only ones who have done that, Portsmouth are in the same boat with even fewer points than us on their home ground than us.

“We have to do better at home, we all know that and Tuesday gives us the chance to bounce back from last week’s cup defeat and hopefully show what we can do in front of a decent crowd taking advantage of the fantastic offer the club has put on.

“To get into a Football League game for £3 is fantastic and we need the backing of he fans.

“We know we can score goals but it is getting things right at he other end of the park which we did on Saturday at Barnet.”
