The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO RESULTS - By Pippa Field

JIM Bent­ley is baf­fled by his More­cambe side’s de­fen­sive in­con­sis­tency this sea­son.

The Shrimps’ de­fence fell apart in a 4-2 mid­week de­feat to Cam­bridge United, the sec­ond suc­ces­sive home game where they con­ceded four goals.

That was in con­trast to their three away games be­fore this week­end, where they kept three clean sheets.

“I am go­ing over the same thing ev­ery week de­fen­sively,” said Bent­ley.

“All the lit­tle things that you speak about which we’ve done in the past and are do­ing away from home, we are not do­ing at the Globe.

“If you score two goals at home, you ex­pect to at least draw the game, but you should be win­ning it.”

But de­spite his clear de­fen­sive con­cerns, Bent­ley did not bring a de­fender in be­fore the loan win­dow closed.

In­stead it was striker Harry For­rester who ar­rived on loan from Black­burn.

The 21-year-old has been strug­gling with fit­ness af­ter pick­ing up a knee in­jury on loan at Bury 18 months ago.

DUMB­FOUND: Jim Bent­ley
