Morecambe Vs Stevenage, Sat 23 Oct 2010

Morecambe defender Darren Moss has left the club by mutual consent ahead of the home clash with Stevenage.

The 29-year-old joined the Shrimps on a free transfer last summer and has made seven appearances for them this season.

However, he has not featured for Sammy McIlroy's men since a 1-0 defeat at Macclesfield on August 31.

McIlroy could make changes to his side following last weekend's disappointing 2-1 defeat at Aldershot and is demanding a vast improvement defensively against Stevenage.

He said: "We had too many people off the pace, too many players didn't turn up, and you can't do that at a place like Aldershot.

"I'm sick of talking about set-pieces. It's so basic and we have to do better."

Stevenage manager Graham Westley will be without Luke Foster.

Foster was given his marching orders 19 minutes after coming on as a substitute in last week's 2-1 win over Burton and will serve the first game of his three-match ban.

New signing Ben May will not be available after the striker had a back operation and is four to six weeks away from full fitness so on-loan striker Chris Holroyd will continue to lead the front-line after his recent goal-scoring form.

Westley is also without Joel Byrom, who has a fractured eye socket, and Lee Boylan also remains sidelined, while long-term absentees Chris Beardsley and Darren Murphy are still unavailable as Stevenage look to continue their push up the League Two table.
