Morecambe boss Jim Bentley begins two-game ban against Notts County

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley will begin a two-match touchline ban when his side host Notts County on Saturday in Sky Bet League Two.

The Football Association announced Bentley would serve the suspension with immediate effect after being charged over an incident in the 2-1 loss to Cheltenham on December 17, when he was sent to the stands for his reaction to a red card for Alex Kenyon.

Shrimps midfielder Kenyon is now available to make his comeback having completed the suspension that resulted from that red card.

Cole Stockton, Ntumba Massanka, Alex Whitmore and James Jennings have all returned to their parent clubs with their loans at Morecambe having expired, while Aaron McGowan looks set to miss out after coming off injured in Monday's 0-0 draw with Crewe. Rhys Turner (hamstring) is a doubt.

Former Manchester United and Leeds striker Alan Smith is set to take charge of his first game as Notts County's interim player-manager at Globe Arena.

John Sheridan was sacked following Monday's 4-0 defeat by Cambridge, their ninth league loss in a row.

Smith will not be able to call on winger Alex Rodman, who was released on Thursday and joined Shrewsbury.

Defender Matt Tootle will hope to feature after missing the last two games with a knock.
