Morecambe boss Jim Bentley claimed he would sell some of his players if he could after they conceded two late goals to lose at home to Mansfield.

The Shrimps were leading through a Paul Mullin penalty but with four minutes to go, Chris Clements and Adi Yussuf secured three points for the Stags.

It leaves Bentley's side 14th in League Two, seven points off the play-offs.

Asked about the performance, Bentley told BBC Radio Lancashire: "Shocking, absolutely shocking."

The 39-year-old added: "I call that a sackable performance.

"There would be a few of them (the players) I would empty out right away if I had a couple of quid to bring a few players in, because they were weak and lacked character.

"The desire of their team, and they've got a lot of experience compared to us, but what they have got is a lot more characters and winners.

"That will hurt me now for days until the weekend. That has absolutely booted me right in the stomach as that should've been three points."
