Morecambe will look to bring the curtain down on their home league campaign with victory over Plymouth Argyle at the Globe Arena tomorrow.
The Shrimps have not had the best of records at home this season. They have collected just six wins, while being on the receiving end of 11 defeats.
But manager Jim Bentley is hoping his team can give the club’s supporters something to cheer against Argyle.
He said: “We want to make sure we can give the fans something to shout about this weekend because they have been great.
“They have stayed with us and we are really grateful for that.”
The Pilgrims have endured a poor season and currently sit just two places above the relegation zone.
They arrive at the Globe Arena, however, in a relaxed frame of mind after securing their League Two status for another season last weekend. Their 1-1 draw at home to Oxford United coupled with Hereford’s goalless draw against Northampton saw Carl Fletcher’s men remain seven points clear of the drop zone with just two games to play.
The Shrimps are set to be without a number of players for tomorrow’s game, although Bentley is hoping to have Izak Reid available.
Meanwhile, Bentley revealed he knows exactly which areas of his squad he needs to bolster for next season if they are to improve upon their mid-table position next season. However, the Morecambe manager revealed he will face a difficult task attracting his targets, due to finance.
“I already know where we need to strengthen. It’s not a case of rebuilding but building on what we already have got,” he said.
“The club has done unbelievably well – certainly over the 10 years I have been here – to be where we are. Five years ago we won promotion from the Conference and now we are mixing it with the big boys.
“We can’t just go out and cherry-pick players, which other clubs can do. We have to work with young players and develop them.”
But left-back Laurence Wilson has indicated he will not be signing a new deal at the Globe Arena and is set to leave in the summer.
