Morecambe vs Hartlepool United

Match Preview
Alex Kenyon banned for Morecambe

Alex Kenyon is suspended for Morecambe's home clash with a Hartlepool side who remain in relegation danger.

Midfielder Kenyon was sent off in the Shrimps' 3-1 loss at Cheltenham last weekend after handling the ball on the line.

Defender Ryan Edwards was able to overcome a slight injury to play the full 90 minutes against the Robins and should be fine to start again.

Morecambe will be desperate to end a run of seven consecutive league defeats.

Carl Magnay is in contention for a starting spot for Hartlepool.

The full-back returned to action in the closing moments of last Saturday's 2-0 defeat at home to Portsmouth following a six-month absence with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.

Loanee Sean Kavanagh is receiving treatment for a hamstring problem at parent club Fulham and is not expected to return.

Billy Paynter (Achilles), Trevor Carson (shoulder) and Rob Jones (knee) are all out for the season.
