Player-manager Kevin Nolan admitted his side didn’t punish Morecambe enough as they picked up a 1-0 win against 10 men.

Jay Simpson missed the subsequent penalty and despite dominating found sub goalkeeper Kieran O’Hara in good form as he denied the hosts on several occasions.
Despite the disappointment though, Nolan was pleased his side’s perseverance paid off and admitted it’s imperative to pick up points despite not playing to your full potential.
