JIM Bentley has called on his Morecambe side to continue their good form at home on Saturday when Exeter City visit the Globe Arena.

After a slow start to the season, the Shrimps have really hit form of late losing just one of their last seven league games.

They also have an impressive record at home going 11 games without loss at the Globe Arena – a run that Bentley is keen for his players to keep going.

"Our home form has been pretty good of late and we haven't lost at home since Setptember," said Bentley.

"We would have liked a couple more wins in that run but overall we have looked really solid and are making the Globe something of a fortress which is something we have been looking to do for some time."

Recently Morecambe have re-ignited their promotion chances by recording back-to-back victories away at Dagenham & Redbridge and York City.

The York City match saw Lewis Alessandra, Kevin Ellison and Jack Redshaw (2) all score in a thumping 4-1 victory.

However, Bentley is not getting carried away and admits his target is to get some good results in the upcoming games to secure their League Two safety.

"The two away wins have really given us a massive lift and if we can get two good results in the next two games we can take a massive stride to safety," he said.

Bentley faces a dilemma in wether to start Redshaw up front after his two-goal heroics against York City, but other than that he is expected to name a similar side to the team that got them their first win at Bootham Crescent in the Football League for Saturday's match against the Grecians.

Predicted line up: Roche, Fenton, Haining, McCready, Parrish, Williams, Ellison, Drummond, McDonald, Alessandra, Holroyd.
