Gary McDonald's close-range finish set up a second-round clash with Coventry, as the Shrimps moved into the second phase of the competition for the first time in four years.

It was the second time Morecambe had claimed victory over Dale at Spotland this season, following their 2-1 league success in October.

Bentley said: "It's a fantastic result for everyone at the club and it was nice to come here and win for the second time in a matter of weeks.

"When we had to dig in, we did it well, and I don't remember our goalkeeper having too many saves to make.

"We defended well, put our bodies on the line when we had to and got the all-important goal away from home and kept a clean sheet."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
