Match Preview

Injury woes for Bentley Morecambe boss Jim Bentley has a host of injury concerns to contend with for their clash with Bristol Rovers at the Globe Arena. Midfielder Gary McDonald and striker Phil Jevons were both absent for the Shrimps' 2-1 triumph at Dagenham with knee and calf problems respectively. Nick Fenton missed the last 20 minutes at Victoria Road after picking up a knock, while fellow defender Andy Parrish suffered an injury in training this week. Bentley is confident of welcoming back one or two players before the weekend, although Paul Scott will definitely miss out as he continues his recuperation from knee surgery. Bentley chose to remain upbeat, despite his side's injury woes, and demanded his fringe players seize any chance they may be given. He told the club's official website: "It's a case of one door shuts, another one opens for whoever wants to go in there and stake their claim for a starting place." Bristol Rovers are almost back to full strength. After a spate of injury problems over the course of the past month, Rovers have had only Gary Sawyer (ankle) and Matt Gill (back) on the casualty list of late. But both defender Sawyer and midfielder Gill returned to training on Thursday, and manager Paul Buckle hopes to have the pair available for selection on Saturday. "More or less every week we have had someone returning and the question of do they go into the team, and that is not easy," Buckle told the club's official website. "It has been a difficult spell in terms of getting continuity, but that is all part of the job. I am learning that now."

Match Report

High-flying Morecambe grounded by Rovers Morecambe suffered their first defeat in nine games as Bristol Rovers shocked the home side 3-2 at the Globe Arena. Cian Bolger headed the Pirates into the lead on 26 minutes when he converted Matt Gill's right-wing corner after earlier forcing the Morecambe keeper into a save from a similar position. The game sparked into life in the second half, as Morecambe scored twice in quick succession. On 57 minutes Jason Price opened his account for Morecambe when he converted Danny Carlton's excellent cross and six minutes later Kevin Ellison made it 2-1 with a free-kick. Rovers soon fought their way back into the game when Scott McGleish shocked Roche from long range with a sweet strike from 25 yards on 65 minutes when there looked to be little danger. Joe Anyinsah then completed the comeback for Rovers with a fine individual goal, as he beat three weak Morecambe challenges with a run down the left hand side to blast a close-range shot past Roche. Morecambe had chances to level again, with Ellison missing an open goal from three yards and Laurence Wilson heading over a Reid corner in injury time.
