VIEW FROM THE BENCH


: "We go into the game off the back of two wins, so we've got a great spirit, plenty of momentum and we'll be looking to take something from the game. Morecambe is the most important game of the season now because it's the next one and gives us an opportunity to build a bit more momentum." Mark Yates
