As you were for Cod Army

Fleetwood have no new injury problems for the derby game with Morecambe in Sky Bet League Two.

Only midfielder Jeff Hughes, whose broken leg has ruled him out for the season, and loanee Bobby Grant, forced back to Blackpool for treatment on a knee injury are unavailable to manager Graham Alexander.

Midfielder Adam Barton is still waiting to make his debut after joining on loan from Coventry while Alexander revealed this week he has no problems continuing with David Ball, despite the striker only just coming back from an ankle problem.

The Cod Army are unbeaten in three and remain three points off the automatic promotion spots with five games remaining.

Midfielder Andy Fleming is suspended for Morecambe's short trip.

The Shrimps, five points above the drop zone and without a win in six, will only have Fleming back for their final two fixtures of the season as he embarks on a three-match suspension.

Chris McCready remains out with a thigh injury while fellow defender Chris Doyle has a groin problem. It means boss Jim Bentley will hope teenage loanee Jack Grimshaw, who has been back with Manchester United because of a knock, can help their cause.

Defender Andy Parrish (knee) also made a comeback last week, leaving midfielder Stewart Drummond (toe) as the only other long-term injury absentee.
