Accrington will be without suspended skipper Andrew Procter for the clash with rivals Morecambe.

The midfielder is serving a one-match ban following his dismissal in the 1-0 win at Shrewsbury last week. Boss John Coleman is yet to decide who will replace Procter, though Sean McConville will be hoping he gets the nod.

Stanley have been boosted by the news that Dean Bouzanis, Johnny Flynn and Billy Kee are all available after extending their loan stays from Liverpool, Blackburn and Leicester respectively until the end of the season.

However, defender Leam Richardson (groin) remains absent and is still yet to feature during the current campaign.

The Reds moved to within touching distance of the League Two play-offs with their victory over the Shrews and Coleman will be hoping his side can continue their current run which has seen them lose just once in their past eight league games.

Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy will assess the fitness of striker Paul Mullin ahead of the game.

The former Stanley frontman is recovering from a knee injury and McIlroy admits the game may come too soon for him.

Mullin was a substitute in last week's home defeat against Chesterfield but is short of match practice and McIlroy harbours concerns over his fitness.

The Shrimps boss, who has no other major worries, said: "I'm sure Paul will be itching to play but it may be just a week too early for him because he's short of games and match fitness."

Morecambe have yet to beat Stanley since joining the Football League.
