Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy is likely to name an unchanged side for the home clash with Aldershot.

The Shrimps have no fresh injuries or suspensions so McIlroy looks certain to name the same side that were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Cheltenham on Saturday.

Defender Paul Scott remains absent as he recovers from a knee operation while McIlroy is urging his side to produce another fine display after they impressed at the weekend.

He said: "If we play like that between now and the rest of the season we will do well.

"We have made a few changes to the squad in the last week or so but the new lads have done really well and are settling in nicely."

Aldershot manager Dean Holdsworth looks likely to recall Luke Guttridge to his squad.

The midfielder was left out of the impressive 2-2 draw away to League Two leaders Chesterfield on Saturday as a precaution after suffering a groin strain.

Top-scorer Wade Small had to settle for a late substitute appearance against the Spireites after suffering from food poisoning but after making a full recovery will be pushing for a starting place.

However, Holdsworth may decide to stick with an unchanged starting XI after they performed so well at the weekend in securing a share of the spoils at the b2net stadium.

Transfer-listed midfielder Manny Panther should therefore retain his place after been handed his first start under Holdsworth against Chesterfield along with striker Peter Vincenti who was also reinstated into the starting 11.

Midfielder John Halls is still a couple of weeks away from a return to action as he continues to struggle with a long-standing groin injury that has restricted him to only eight appearances this season the last of which came in October.
