Morecambe boss Jim Bentley says his side can take the positives from Tuesday's clash at Macclesfield to Dagenham this weekend.
The Shrimps extended their unbeaten run to seven league games with a 1-1 draw at Moss Rose in midweek, despite being far from their best.
Yet Bentley said: "It says a lot about how far we have come when we feel really disappointed not to have picked up three points away from home.
"We played Macclesfield three times last season and lost all three games so we have done better than we did last year.
"We have to take the positives and work on the negatives and move on to Dagenham now, hoping to add to our unbeaten run."
