The 22-year-old former Manchester City youngster has secured a one-year extension and underlined his value to the Shrimps with two goals from the bench to seal Saturday's impressive 4-1 win at York

"I know that he loves the place and I think he's improving," Bentley told BBC Radio Lancashire.

"There's no doubt that he's got the ability. Look at the composure he showed for his two goals on Saturday."

Redshaw's weekend strikes were his first since the start of December and Bentley concedes negotiations over a new deal might have been detrimental to his form.

"We'd been speaking to him for a couple of weeks, and he'll be the first to admit that his performances dipped a little bit," he added. "Everyone's different and some people can put it to the back of their mind.

"He's a strong-minded person. When he gets around that final third, there's only one thing in his mind - he wants to score goals. I'm pleased to have him on board."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
