Team News: Morecambe v Pools

6 April 2017

We take a look at the latest info from both camps ahead of Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two game against Morecambe at The Globe Arena (3pm kick-off).

Carl Magnay could come in to contention for a starting spot this weekend after returning to the bench and playing the last couple of minutes against Portsmouth on Saturday.

The full-back has been out of action since September after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament but has made a remarkable recovery and is now challenging for a place in the line-up at Morecambe.

Billy Paynter (Achilles) and Trevor Carson (shoulder) are both out for the season, whilst Dave Jones has confirmed that Sean Kavanagh (hamstring) is still back with Fulham and is unlikely to return.

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley must decide whether to make any changes after seeing his side slip to their seventh successive League Two defeat at Cheltenham Town on Saturday.

Back-up goalkeeper Danijel Nizic returned from international duty last weekend and Ryan Edwards also shook off a knock to play the full ninety minutes at Whaddon Road.

Bentley will have to do without midfielder Alex Kenyon who was sent-off against Newport after returning from a spell on the sidelines with a knee injury.
