Match Preview

Roche misses out for Shrimps Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy will again be without goalkeeper Barry Roche when his side host Bradford. Roche sustained a thigh injury in the first half of the Shrimps' victory over Southend last Saturday and is facing up to a fortnight on the sidelines. Joe Anyon was signed on loan in time for the midweek defeat at Bury and looks certain to line up between the posts again, despite a mistake on his debut. Anyon let a Lennell John-Lewis shot squirm under his hands with just five minutes remaining, and McIlroy said: "They only really had one shot on target throughout the game and unfortunately Joe let it through. "I feel for the boy and we will now just have to forget it and move on to Saturday and work hard again." Defender Paul Scott is stepping up his fitness but is set to remain absent as he recovers from a knee operation. Bradford goalkeeper Lenny Pidgeley is an injury doubt for the trip. Pidgeley lasted the full 90 minutes in the midweek win over Rotherham, but sustained a thigh injury and could face a late fitness test, meaning Jon McLaughlin is on stand-by. Winger Kevin Ellison, on loan from Rotherham, is back in contention after missing out against his parent club, but may have to be content with a place among the substitutes after new interim manager Peter Jackson's first win in charge. Striker Scott Dobie filled in out wide and proved highly effective, while midfielders Tom Adeyemi, who scored the Bantams' controversial winner on Tuesday night, and Leon Osborne are pushing for recalls to the starting line-up. But Jackson, who has no new injury or suspension worries, is not expected to make changes, with James Hanson and Jake Speight continuing their partnership up front.

Match Report

Jackson strengthens hold on Bantams job Bradford secured their second win of the week with a 1-0 defeat of Morecambe to increase interim boss Peter Jackson's chances of securing the full-time job. Striker James Hanson gave the Bantams victory with a 32nd-minute header. The striker had a stroke of luck as Kieran Charnock's clearance rebounded off Gareth Evans and looped perfectly into the path of Hanson who headed past the helpless Joe Anyon from six yards out. They should have extended their lead five minutes into injury time when Kevin Ellison won a penalty after being brought down by Andy Parrish but Gareth Evans saw his spot kick saved by Anyon. It was Jackson's side who had the better of the chances throughout with Morecambe keeper Anyon making excellent saves from Gareth Evans and Michael Flynn to keep the scoreline down. Morecambe threatened rarely. Moments after Hanson's opener Garry Hunter missed the target from six yards out from Laurence Wilson's cross when he looked certain to score and in the closing minutes Stewart Drummond headed a Chris Shuker cross weakly at John McLaughlin.
