Morecambe Vs Wycombe Wanderers, Sat 26 Mar 2011

Next Story

Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy will be without midfielder Stewart Drummond for the home clash with Wycombe.

Drummond was sent off for collecting two yellow cards during Tuesday`s 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Macclesfield and now serves a one-match ban.

Goalkeeper Barry Roche has missed the last four matches because of a thigh injury and on-loan Lincoln stopper Joe Anyon has since lined up between the posts.

However, Roche made a return to action when he played for the reserves in their 7-2 victory over Macclesfield in midweek.

Striker Phil Jevons scored four times in that match to push his claims for a starting role as the Shrimps look to bounce back from the Macclesfield loss.

Wycombe defender Chris Westwood will miss the trip to Christie Park.

The veteran has been ruled out for three weeks with a muscle tear.

Left-back Andy Sandell made his return from a knee injury in a reserve-team game against Gillingham on Wednesday night but only played the first half and is not yet match fit.

Midfielder Stuart Lewis has been ruled out for up to three weeks with ankle ligament damage but striker Jon-Paul Pittman is in contention to start.

The former Crawley man has endured a frustrating season with injuries - scoring just three times - but is fit again and bagged a brace for the reserves to put himself in with a chance.

Manager Gary Waddock has no other fresh injury concerns as he looks for just a second win in the last six games to boost their flagging promotion challenge, but Rob Kiernan is away on international duty with the Republic of Ireland Under-21s.
