MORE­CAMBE boss Jim Bent­ley has em­braced the club’s bat­tle against rel­e­ga­tion, de­spite the toll it is tak­ing on his fam­ily life.

Bent­ley’s troops had a three-point cush­ion ahead of yes­ter­day’s penul­ti­mate games of the sea­son and, while not ideal, he in­sists the ex­pe­ri­ence has added to his char­ac­ter.

“It takes over your whole life,” he said.

“You wake up think­ing about re­sults and the fam­ily don’t get as much at­ten­tion, but you’ve got to keep bat­tling through.

“You can’t feel sorry for yourself, you’ve got to get on and do the best job you can, keep your head down and keep work­ing hard.”
