Morecambe Vs Aldershot Town, Sat 20 Aug 2011

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley could hand winger Kevin Ellison a starting role when his in-form side host Aldershot.

Bentley's men are in buoyant mood after recording three away wins inside a week, claiming victories at Hereford and Cheltenham in league combat and dumping Barnsley out of the Carling Cup.

Ellison came off the bench to score a last-gasp winner at Whaddon Road on Tuesday and could now earn a starting role.

The winger missed most of pre-season with a thigh injury, but Bentley said: "I put him on at half-time for his bite and experience and credit to him because it's been hard for him with the injury."

Midfielders Garry Hunter (heel) and Andy Fleming (ankle) have missed the last two games and will be assessed while Paul Scott remains the only long-term absentee.

Aldershot boss Dean Holdsworth has a fully-fit squad to choose from for the trip and is expected to keep faith with the same side that was beaten 1-0 at home by Torquay in midweek.

That means last season's Supporters' Player of the Year Luke Guttridge will keep his place in midfield.

The 29-year-old's 90 minutes against Torquay was his first of the season after recovering from a knee injury and he should be fit enough to play his second match in five days despite tiring towards the end.

Danny Hylton and Michael Rankine have only scored one goal between them this season but should lead the attack.

Defender Alex Rodman will again have to be content with a place on the bench.
