Darren Way says his side will have to find a way of breaking down a resilient Morecambe at the Globe Arena on Saturday (3pm).
The Shrimps’ fortunes on the field of late contrast those off it, with Jim Bentley’s outfit picking up four wins in eight matches to lift themselves away from the relegation zone.
Their good form in February led to Bentley being nominated for Sky Bet League Two manager of the month and Way is expecting a tough contest.
“They’ve had problems and they’ve stuck together,” he told YTFC’s official YouTube channel.
“Jim Bentley works hard behind the scenes and he hasn’t got massive resources. They’re a team that work hard for each other, they’re honest and they’ve got one or two younger players who were almost targets for us.
“They’ve done very well and we know it’s going to be a difficult game.”
He continued: “One thing about the way Jim sets them up is they’re very solid, compact and they defend very well.
“We had a lot of the play in the last game (1-0 defeat at Huish Park back in August) and they hit us on the counter attack.
“We have to make sure we break them down and we have to make sure we pick up three points.”
