Simpson to stick with XI

Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson will be reluctant to make changes when his side host Morecambe.

The Silkmen recorded a thumping 4-1 derby win at Stockport on Saturday and ended a 10-match winless run.

Defender Carl Tremarco is recovering from a hip injury and remains sidelined along with Vinny Mukendi, who is set to miss out again with a knee problem.

Simpson, who has no other major concerns, was delighted his side finally returned to winning ways at the weekend.

He said: "We got three points and that's the main thing because they are one of the teams down there with us.

"It's great for the fans. I'm so happy for the fans because they haven't had much to cheer about recently."

Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy could wield the axe.

The Shrimps were thumped 3-0 at home by Oxford on Saturday and have now gone eight matches without a win.

Striker Danny Carlton recently returned to the club and came on as a second-half substitute at the weekend.

He could now push for a starting berth but winger Chris Shuker will be assessed after missing the last three games with a hamstring injury.

Goalkeeper Barry Roche said: "We are creating chances, which is good, but we need to be far tighter at the back.

"We are in a bit of a fight but I am sure we we have enough experience to get ourselves out of trouble."
