Morecambe boss Jim Bentley was full of praise for his side after an excellent win at Crawley on Saturday.
Bentley made five changes to the starting line up after the 1-0 defeat against Barnet in midweek and he praised those who came into the squad.
Rhys Turner opened the scoring before Paul Mullin struck twice in the 3-1 victory.
He said: “We made changes because of injuries and suspensions and not as a knee jerk reaction after the Barnet defeat but the players who came in really produced.
“We gave some players a chance and they took it with both hands which was brilliant.
“Rhys Turner scored a good goal and Antony Evans had an excellent debut and all over the park there were great performances against a side with a really good home record.
“I always say management is as much about the players who have been on the sidelines as it is about those playing regularly but I have told them all to make sure they are ready when they get the call and that is what we did.
“We had the best possible start and it was a great team performance all round.
“We scored three and could have had more and we were deserved winners.
“We had a slight blip when we lost against Barnet in midweek but I’m really pleased with the form of 2017 so far and long may that continue.’’
