Bentley and Rowett share the spoils
Jim Bentley and counterpart Gary Rowett were both satisfied to take a point as Morecambe and Burton shared an uneventful goalless draw at the Globe Arena.
Neither side could find the target on an afternoon when both sets of defenders dominated and although Morecambe looked the more threatening, the home side could not find the finishing touch to some neat build-up play, much to the disappointment of Shrimps boss Bentley.
The Morecambe manager said: "I thought we played some great stuff at times and I have to be happy with the overall performance. We passed it around well and caused a good team a lot of problems, while at the other end we showed great discipline against a Burton team who have scored a lot of goals this year.
"We certainly had the better chances but we didn't really test their 'keeper as much as I would have liked and that was the only disappointment. If we had shown a bit more composure around the box we could have taken all three points."
Burton boss Rowett added: "We have had a really tough week with two away games and there is no doubt that has taken it out of the lads. We lacked a bit of fizz and our normal sparkle in the final third of the field, and sometimes that is what happens.
"Despite the pressure they had they haven't really tested our goalkeeper and I am delighted to come away with the point. It's a result that extends our unbeaten run further and we can look to build on that with the home games coming up."
