Morecambe V Accrington Stanley at Globe Arena : Match Preview

01 September 2017
Jim Bentley set to make wholesale changes for Morecambe clash with Accrington

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley could hand debuts to Adam McGurk and Callum Lang for Saturday's Sky Bet League Two home clash with Accrington.

McGurk has joined after leaving Cambridge, while fellow forward Lang has been recruited on a season-long loan from Wigan.

Bentley made seven changes for the Checkatrade Trophy match against Carlisle at the Globe Arena on Tuesday which the Shrimps lost 2-0 and could revert to his regular line-up.

Rhys Turner, who has had a hamstring injury, is expected to be available again after missing the last two games. But fellow forward Vadaine Oliver (ankle) remains sidelined.

Goalkeeper Max Stryjek and defenders Farrend Rawson, Jordan Thorniley and Callum Johnson could make their Accrington debuts having joined the club on loan.

Mekhi McLeod begins a three-match suspension after his red card in the 2-2 draw at Notts County last Friday.

It remains to be seen whether Ben Richards-Everton, who dislocated his shoulder in the Meadow Lane contest, is able to feature this time around.

Tyler Forbes is likely to miss out again due to his knee problem.
