Wilson back for Shrimps
Morecambe should have Laurence Wilson back in the fold for their match with Accrington.
Wilson missed last week's thumping 3-0 defeat at the hands of promotion-chasing Swindon after injuring both of his feet against Oxford the week before.
However, he may well be back in contention as the Shrimps desperately seek to end their five-match winless run in npower League Two.
Garry Hunter returned against the Robins following an unspecified injury, coming off the bench with 11 minutes remaining.
He is pushing for a start, although fellow strikers Phil Jevons and Jason Price seem better placed to get the nod.
The Shrimps enjoyed a rampant start to the season, but have tailed off in recent weeks and now find themselves 11th in the table.
Accrington will be without Luke Joyce after he picked up a straight red card in last week's 3-1 victory over Torquay.
He will serve a three-match suspension after the club this week opted not to appeal due to a lack of video evidence.
Joyce's fellow midfielder Ian Craney is targeting an ahead-of-schedule comeback following time on the sidelines with a broken leg, although the games against Hereford and Macclesfield either side of new year may be more realistic targets.
Defender Sean Hessey missed the Torquay win as he served a suspension for picking up five yellow cards, but is expected to return to boss John Coleman's plans.
Alan Burton remains out of action as he continues his recovery from a double hernia operation earlier this month.
Stanley stun Shrimps
A superb strike from Bryan Hughes ensured that Accrington maintained their hoodoo over north-west rivals Morecambe with a 2-1 victory.
The veteran midfielder produced a stunning right-foot curler from the edge of the area 15 minutes from time to give Accrington their 10th win in 13 games against the Shrimps.
Morecambe went close after eight minutes when Jason Price fired inches over from Danny Carlton's neat lay-off.
Accrington took the lead in the 34th minute when Craig Lindfield's cross found Kevin Long and his header was parried by Barry Roche into the path of Jayden Stockley who slammed the ball in from close range.
Andy Proctor went close to adding a second after 42 minutes with a shot from 25 yards that flew just wide of the right-hand post.
The Shrimps hit back with an equaliser in the 55th minute. Will Haining delivered a cross from the right which was met by Carlton and his effort was well blocked by Ian Dunbavin but the ball fell neatly for Stewart Drummond to score from eight yards out.
Morecambe then enjoyed a period of dominance with Dunbavin saving well from Laurence Wilson and Lewis Alessandra before Hughes produced the all important moment of quality.
