The Shrimps were dealt a huge blow in pre-season when last season's top scorer Jack Redshaw was ruled out until the new year with a hip injury, leaving them potentially light up-front.

However, after a shaky start, Bentley's side have won three on the trot in Sky Bet League Two with four different players - Kevin Ellison, Padraig Amond, Andy Fleming and Jack Sampson - scoring seven goals between them.

Former Bolton striker Sampson opened his Morecambe account in the win over Southend on Saturday and Bentley was pleased his efforts had finally been rewarded.

Speaking to BBC Radio Lancashire, he said: "Any fan who's been to the games will agree that he's not had much luck.

"The way he came inside and let it go with his left foot was fantastic. I'm pleased. It's great he's off the mark.

"We got Padraig Amond off the mark last week, Kevin Ellison is up to three goals now, Ryan Williams has scored and Andy Fleming has chipped in with his two great finishes.

"It's good that goals are coming from all over and long may it continue."

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!
