Morecambe V Bristol Rovers at Globe Arena - Match Preview

Kenyon out for Shrimpers

Morecambe will be without the suspended Alex Kenyon when Bristol Rovers travel to the Globe Arena in Sky Bet League Two.

The 21-year-old midfielder was awarded his fifth yellow card of the season, which automatically triggers a one-match suspension, in the Shrimps' loss to Cheltenham last Saturday.

Boss Jim Bentley may again be without Ryan Williams too, the young midfielder missing the Robins clash because of a hamstring injury, while Kevin Ellison's fractured eye socket keeps him out until January.

Defender Chris McCready sat on the bench a week ago because of a sickness bug but he has overcome those symptoms now and will be vying for a spot in the starting XI.

Bristol Rovers will be without defender Will Packwood on Saturday after he was recalled by Birmingham.

The 20-year-old has been a crucial cog in John Ward's side since joining on loan but an injury to Blues left-back Mitch Hancox saw Lee Clark activate an instant recall clause.

Packwood's departure means Tom Lockyer will play alongside captain Tom Parkes at Morecambe as Rovers look to continue a fine run of form which has seen them lose just one of their last nine games in all competitions.

Chris Beardsley and John-Joe O'Toole return to contention having served their three-match bans.
