Morecambe striker Paul Mullin insists Saturday's 1-0 victory at Bradford has provided a major boost.
Mullin, who had a short spell on loan with the Bantams two seasons ago, scored his third goal in four games as the Shrimps bounced back from their 4-1 home thumping against Bury.
Mullin said: "I thought we fully deserved the win.
"I thought we controlled the game really well, looked solid at the back and dangerous on the break.
"We went with a slightly different formation and we were in charge for most of it. It was a real boost for the team and we deserve all the credit we get."
