Team News: Pools v Morecambe

20 April 2014

We take a look at the latest from both camps ahead of the Easter Monday game against Morecambe at Victoria Park (3pm kick-off).

Luke James is a doubt to play against Morecambe on Monday after being forced off with an ankle injury during Saturday’s defeat at Burton Albion.

The 16-goal striker hurt his ankle when he fell awkwardly on a water sprinkler as he chased a ball down on the right flank at The Pirelli Stadium and is now receiving treatment.

Colin Cooper has no other new injury worries ahead of the fixture, with Antony Sweeney (hamstring), Neil Austin (toe) and Christian Burgess (ankle) all still ruled out.

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley was boosted by the inclusions of both Shaun Beeley and Jamie Devitt for their 1-1 draw with Scunthorpe United at The Globe Arena on Good Friday.

Beeley (ankle) and Devitt (knee) had both missed training in the run-up to the fixture but were able to get through ninety minutes to prove their fitness.

Midfielder Andy Fleming won’t be involved at The Vic as he completes a three-game suspension, while Stuart Drummond is now out for the remainder of the season with a toe injury.
