Match Preview

Tomlinson worry for Vale Port Vale will check on goalkeeper Stuart Tomlinson ahead of the visit of Morecambe but Sean Rigg is set to miss out. Goalkeeper Tomlinson was due to start Monday's 1-0 defeat at Stevenage - a loss which all but ended Vale's hopes of a play-off place - until he was withdrawn from the starting XI before kick-off due to illness. Chris Martin stepped in between the sticks and will do so again should Tomlinson, who instead dropped to the bench, fails to recover in time. Forward Rigg, who came into the side at Broadhall Way in place of Louis Dodds, was forced off after just 13 minutes having suffered knee ligament damage. Dodds is now likely to regain his starting spot against the Shrimps, while midfielder Sam Morsy is also pushing for a recall. Doug Loft continues to miss the closing stages of the season with his ruptured hamstring. Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy will be without a quartet of players. Andy Parrish and Andy Fleming are set to miss out again through injury and Paul Scott (knee) and Kieran Charnock (Achilles) remain long-term absentees. The 1-1 draw at home to Hereford on Easter Monday left the Shrimps six points ahead of second-bottom Barnet with two games remaining and all-but safe from relegation. Meanwhile, Morecambe midfielder Craig Stanley has publicly stated his desire to leave the Globe Arena at the end of the season. Stanley, who is out of contract at the end of the current campaign, has enjoyed a successful loan spell with Paul Buckle's side and has said he wishes to stay at Plainmoor next season.

Match Report

Dodds and Richards hammer Shrimps Louis Dodds and Justin Richards claimed hat-tricks to trounce woeful Morecambe 7-2, but Port Vale's return to form came too late to make the play-offs. Vale, who had failed to score more than twice in any home league game this season, rattled in four before the break, including a brace for the previously out of touch Justin Richards. Dodds opened the floodgates with a 16-yard shot in the 17th minute before Marc Richards registered his 20th of the campaign with a lob over Barry Roche four minutes later. Phil Jevons buried a 20-yard shot to pull one back in the 32nd minute, but hopes of a comeback were extinguished when Justin Richards raced clear to round Roche in the 41st minute and then fired in a rising shot in stoppage time. Vale continued to attack at will in the second-half and some comical defending led to Dodds rattling in his second in the 58th minute. And it became embarrassing for Morecambe when Dodds curled in a terrific left-foot shot to complete his hat-trick after picking up a short corner from Morsy in the 70th minute. Morecambe substitute James Spencer poked in a consolation strike from close range 12 minutes from time, but Justin Richards side-footed his third in added time.
