Gaz: Secure safety at Morecambe

31 March 2013

Player/manager Gareth Ainsworth has challenged his side to respond to Good Friday's defeat with a return to winning ways at Morecambe.

Wanderers were robbed of a point in injury-time when Accrington Stanley's Lee Molyneux struck to settle a game Ainsworth's men should have won. 

Now he wants to use that hurt to see off the Shrimps and reach his survival target of 52 points - some feat with the Blues having been bottom of the table in November.

He said: "I think we had the better chances on the whole but we didn't stick them away. I think they had one shot on target and they've scored with it.

"It was a tough one to take because we had the majority of the chances and the majority of the better play – unfortunately we didn't stick it in the net."

Ainsworth added: "We need to pick ourselves up quickly because we've got a long trip up to Morecambe on Sunday. It's good we've got a game so quickly to put things right.

"We'll take it on the chin and come back stronger on Monday.

"I still want three points to see us safe and I'm pretty confident that one win will do it. Hopefully we can get that Monday."
