Morecambe, once again, did what they’ve done so well this season. The Shrimps came from behind twice to draw 2-2 with Portsmouth at the Globe Arena on Saturday afternoon.

Jim Bentley, also once again, had to admit that he’s getting “a bit fed up” with having to come from behind with the “comeback kings” doing it once again but at the same time praised the determination to do this.

The Shrimps boss also said that he felt a draw was ultimately a fair results.

Bentley said: ‘I’m getting a bit fed up of us going behind to be honest because it seems to be every game but at the same time I have to give the lads credit because they have once again shown their never say die attitude and determination to get something from the game.

‘We could have let our heads drop after missing the penalty but we kept going and despite the horrible conditions played some decent football as well.

‘We didn’t perhaps create as many chances as I would have liked in the second half when we had the wind behind us but we had a bit of luck and I think the draw was a fair result.’

Portsmouth went ahead through Jake Jervis but Mark Hughes levelled for Morecambe. Padraig Amond had a chance to put the Shrimps ahead but his penalty was saved by Trevor Carson.

Jervis then put Portsmouth ahead again with Jack Redshaw earning Morecambe a point in the end.
