Match Preview

Duo set to earn starts Ajay Leitch-Smith and Ashley Westwood are poised to retain their places in Steve Davis' starting line-up when Crewe host Morecambe. Striker Leitch-Smith and utility man Westwood were restored to the Alex side to face Bristol Rovers by Davis following the Boxing Day defeat at Bradford and it proved to be an inspired move. Leitch-Smith netted his fifth goal of the season with 70 seconds gone to set the Railwaymen on their way to a 5-2 victory, while Westwood produced a controlled display in midfield. Forward Shaun Miller serves the final game of his three-match ban for a straight red card in the 1-1 draw with Crawley last month. Victory at the Memorial Stadium was Crewe's first in four npower League Two matches. Kevin Ellison is hoping to celebrate his new contract at Morecambe with a return to the Shrimps' starting line-up. Ellison has been nursing a back injury in recent weeks and failed to make an anticipated return for the New Year's Eve clash with Burton. The nine-goal forward has since penned a one-year extension to his present deal at the Globe Arena that was due to expire in the summer. Ellison aside, boss Jim Bentley has no new injury worries, meaning Chris McCready is set to continue in defence having extended his own stay on the Lancashire coast by another two years. "Both players have been brilliant for us this season and I am delighted to see them agree new deals," said Bentley on Morecambe's official website. "It is a great start to 2012 for us and really helps in the forward planning we are trying to do here."

Match Report

Ellison seals Shrimps triumph Kevin Ellison hit his 10th goal of the season as Morecambe ended their eight-game winless run with a hard-fought 1-0 victory at Crewe. The Railwaymen dominated the opening 45 minutes but found themselves trailing at the break. Alex youngster Nick Powell shot wide with a 30-yard free-kick and Jamie Lowry failed to test keeper Barry Roche with an effort from the edge of the box. When Roche was called into action he pulled off two fine saves to keep out Lee Bell's fierce free-kick and Ashley Westwood's snapshot. But the visitors took the lead in the 33rd minute with their first shot of the game. Andy Parrish whipped in a superb cross which Alex defender Adam Dugdale could only flick-on for Ellison to lash home at the far post. Danny Carlton thought he had doubled the lead on the stroke of half-time, but the winger was fractionally offside when he flicked Phil Jevons' shot past Crewe keeper Steve Phillips. The home side continued to fashion and miss opportunities with Lowry seeing a shot deflected to safety before Bell's effort was saved and Ajay Leitch-Smith spooned wide from Max Clayton's cutback. Roche then produced when it mattered again to keep out Leitch-Smith's powerful effort while Dave Artell headed wide from a corner. Still, it was Morecambe who looked the more likely to score with their rare forays forward. Ellison headed Lewis Alessandra's corner onto the post before the former cut in and lashed the ball against the crossbar. The Shrimps' top scorer, who penned a new contract on the eve of the game, then had Phillips scrambling to keep out a long-range shot and Lawrence Wilson flashed a low drive inches wide of the Alex goal.
