Speaking after the game, he said: ''I can't ask for anymore than a clean sheet away from home.

''There was always gonna be a response from Morecambe after they lost in midweek, they've changed their shape, gone with three at the back and tried to make life difficult.

''Both teams found the conditions challenging and in the end it was probably a fair result.

''That's one defeat in nine and we've got to be happy with that.

''We've had two games on the road and taken four points, that's a fair return in anyone's book and what we deserve.

''Sometimes our final ball wasn't quite there, I thought both teams looked a threat from set plays because of the swirling wind and it could've quite easily been a messy goal today that was gonna be the deciding factor.

The Town boss is also pleased that his side are keeping things out at the other end as of late, saying: ''We're certainly more resilent, no doubt about it.

''We hadnt kept a clean sheet in the first eight games but now we've kept three or four so that's important because over a season it's one thing to score a goal but you need 18 clean sheets so we're starting to knock them out as well.''

Speaking ahead of Town's clash with Cambridge United at Blundell Park next Saturday, Slade said: ''I'm looking for a solid performance again and let's se if we can get the points to propel us up the table.''
