MORECAMBE manager Sammy McIlroy gave his verdict on the FA Trophy win.

He said: "Everyone expected us to win but they came with no pressure on them.

"We started very, very well and got the goal we wanted. The one little disappointment was that we didn't kick on from there.

"We had a few words at half-time and told them to up the pace in the second half - we didn't want a replay down in Bristol on Tuesday night.

"In the second half, we did the job and ended up being comfortable winners.

"Michael Twiss got two great goals and it was good to see Jason Walker get one as well as Garry Hunter and Michael Howard. We could do with more goals from all over the park and they were all well-worked goals.

Walker took just 25 minutes to open his Morecambe account while Howard's strike was his first in 96 starts for the Shrimps.

"Jason took his goal really well. He could be a good asset for us.

"We have been trying to get the full-backs forward all season and they are beginning to get there. Michael played a great one-two, it opened up and he stuck it away well.

"The lads were calling him Roberto Carlos after that!"
