Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy will assess the fitness of striker Phil Jevons ahead of the home clash with Barnet.

The on-loan Huddersfield striker has been nursing a back injury and will face a late fitness test to see if he is able to return to the starting line-up.

Fellow frontman Paul Mullin is still ruled out with a knee injury and both Garry Hunter and Laurence Wilson will finally get to serve their one match-suspensions for picking up five bookings.

McIlroy has no other major concerns as the Shrimps finally embark on their first outing since the 4-1 thumping at Rochdale on December 28.

The scheduled matches against Macclesfield, Burton and Hereford were all postponed due to the big freeze.

Barnet defender Gary Breen remains a fitness doubt ahead of the trip.

The former Republic of Ireland international has missed the last 11 games with his knee problems but could make a belated return as Ian Hendon's side look to return to winning ways.

The Bees have plummeted down the League Two table after a bright start and have not won in the league since October.

Left-back Kenny Gillet is also doubtful after he came off after half an hour against Lincoln last weekend so Ahmed Deen is on standby to start.

Clovis Kamdjo (knee) remains a long-term absentee as he recovers from an operation while transfer-listed winger Albert Adomah will continue to be available for selection as his on-off move to Blackpool drags on.
