Match Preview

No new worries for McIlroy Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy has no new injury or suspension concerns ahead of the home clash with npower League Two rivals Rotherham. Midfielder Neil Wainwright and defender Jim Bentley are still ruled out after picking up injuries in the summer but McIlroy has an otherwise full-strength squad. The Shrimps are in buoyant mood after beating Championship outfit Coventry 2-0 in the Carling Cup first round on Tuesday. Summer signing Andy Fleming will be hoping to keep his place in the centre of midfield after enjoying a dream debut in midweek when his two goals dumped the Sky Blues. Fleming, who joined from Wrexham, said: "To score both goals as well was unbelievable and it is a night I will never forget." Rotherham will be able to welcome back a host of players for the trip. Loan duo Exodus Geohaghon and Dean Holden missed the 4-1 Carling Cup thumping at Peterborough as their parent clubs denied them permission to play in the competition while midfielder Mark Bradley returns from international duty with Wales. All three should come back into the squad while striker Tom Elliott could also be involved again after he pulled out of the trip to London Road on the morning of the game with a knee injury. Tom Pope, Ryan Taylor and Dale Tonge are continued absentees as they all struggle with foot injuries but Johnny Mullins could be in contention as he steps up his recovery from a hamstring problem. Manager Ronnie Moore will also be hoping to bring in a striker in time for the clash as deals for Ian Thomas-Moore, Jon Macken and Izale McLeod have all seemed to have fallen by the wayside.

Match Report

Stalemate at Globe Arena Morecambe and Rotherham produced an entertaining goalless draw in the first ever league encounter at the Globe Arena. Both sides had chances to win the game and both hit the woodwork in an exciting second half. Adam Le Fondre hit the post from 25 yards after 48 minutes and Morecambe defender Chris McCready also hit the woodwork 12 minutes from time with a header from Adam Rundle's right-wing corner. Rotherham also went close with Barry Roche saving superbly from Kevin Ellison after the Shrimps saw Phil Jevons and Adam Rundle come close in the first half. Both sides pushed for the winner but some excellent defending from both teams kept it to a stalemate.
