No complaints for McKenna

Morecambe's assistant manager Kenny McKenna admitted his side could have no complaints about their 2-0 defeat at Scunthorpe.

Both goals came in the first half from veteran striker Deon Burton who opened the scoring after 17 minutes before adding a second with a terrific solo effort in the 33rd minute.

"Scunthorpe showed they are a good team and why they are up there in the table," he confessed.

"We started really brightly, forcing seven corners so early in the game, and if we had got a goal from one off them, it might have been different.

"We did think we should have had a penalty for handball but the referee did not give it.

"Once Scunthorpe went in front it was difficult for us and it made if even more difficult when they got a second.

"I was a bit disappointed that we could not ourselves back into the game in the second half.

"Our best chance came late in the game. It might have given us an opportunity to get something out of it, but we did not really deserve anything.

"We were not at our best - but we were playing against a good side.

"All I can do is thank our fans for the support they gave us, I think they appreciated the effort that we put in."
