Townsend blow for Bulls
Hereford will welcome back defender Michael Townsend for Saturday's visit of Morecambe.
Townsend missed the first two games of the campaign due to a suspension carried over from the last campaign and is set to return to the side as they look to build on Tuesday's Carling Cup victory over Brentford.
Midfielder Nicky Featherstone has also missed the Bulls' first two matches due to a foot injury but he could be named in the squad on Saturday.
Manager Jamie Pitman could be tempted to hand Yoann Arquin a start up front after he came off the bench to score a dramatic late winner against Brentford.
Goalkeeper Dan Connor (hip) remains a long-term absentee.
Morecambe manager Jim Bentley could have a selection headache.
Bentley enjoyed his first win as Shrimps boss on Tuesday with a shock 2-0 win at Barnsley in the first round of the Carling Cup.
Striker Phil Jevons should be fit again after missing the Oakwell victory and Bentley will have to decide whether to recall him or stick with midweek goalscorer Danny Carlton up front.
Winger Kevin Ellison marked a surprise appearance off the bench with a goal at Barnsley and should be on the bench again this weekend.
Andy Fleming also sat on the bench after suffering a recurrence of his ankle injury and is likely to remain there with Gary McDonald starting in midfield.
Shrimps claim first win
Morecambe opened their npower League Two account with an impressive 3-0 victory over Hereford at Edgar Street.
Goals from Danny Carlton and Phil Jevons set up Morecambe's second away win in four days, having knocked Barnsley out of the Carling Cup on Tuesday.
Midfielder Stewart Drummond added Morecambe's third in the 63rd minute when he lashed the ball into the net from 18 yards.
Striker Carlton forced Hereford goalkeeper Adam Bartlett into early action with a 30-yard rasping drive which he tipped over the bar.
The Bulls rallied, though, with Joe Heath sweeping a deep cross over to Joe Colbeck, the midfielder guiding the ball wide from close range.
Hereford's midfielder Rob Purdie rifled a 35-yard drive wide of the target, while Morecambe's Nick Fenton headed over the top at the other end.
The deadlock was eventually broken in the 37th minute when Carlton beat his marker Stefan Stam before rifling the ball through the hands of Bartlett into the net.
The visitors eventually went further ahead on the stroke of half-time when Jevons drilled a low drive into the far corner of the net after Michael Townsend had brought down Carlton just outside the penalty area.
Morecambe's third came in the 63rd minute when a corner from Laurence Wilson was headed back across the goalmouth by Gary McDonald to Drummond, who blasted it past Bartlett.
