Boss Michael Duff has called on his side to deliver better performances ahead of tonight's important League Two match against Morecambe at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium (7.45pm kick-off).

Jim Bentley's side arrive on the back of two successive wins against Macclesfield Town (2-1) and away at Grimsby Town (2-1) four days ago.

"I thought we were disappointing, but we came up against a team who will win the league on Saturday, I thought they were very good," his said in his press conference.

"They are the benchmark, so we will pick the bones out of it this morning and crack on. It’s another game and another three points.

"We need to deliver better performances; better performances will produce better results ultimately.

"The players know, the staff know, and we know that the home record hasn’t been good enough.

"Rather than individualising and saying we have to win that game, you only get three points for winning a game, so the performances need to be better to start winning more games."

The manager also talked about the important role the players can play to get the fans behind the team.

"The fans have been positive despite not quite getting those results at home and gave a good reception on Saturday," he said.

"They are important. There needs to be a connection between the club and the fans and we know what we need to deliver.

"Hopefully we can deliver better performances so that they make more noise and a few more start coming, that’s the plan, we know it’s not easy to deliver that, but we need them on board."
