Shrimps confident for Bantams clash

Morecambe head into their Capital One Cup trip to Bradford full of confidence after a comfortable 3-0 win at Dagenham on Saturday.

Manager Jim Bentley hailed the match as the perfect performance and has the luxury of a full squad to select from.

Striker Paul Mullin may get his first start since joining from Huddersfield on a short-term deal while new arrivals Jamie Devitt and Ryan Edwards will be looking to be involved.

Forwards Kevin Ellison and Padraig Amond may continue in attack after both scored against the Daggers.

Bradford goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has not been given permission to play by parent club Sunderland and with Ben Williams still awaiting international clearance another new signing, Matt Urwin, could start in goal.

Midfielder Billy Knott and striker Billy Clarke may both miss out after sustaining knocks in the opening-day win against Coventry, so Matty Dolan could start, while Filipe Morais and Mo Shariff are in contention for their first appearances.

New defender Christopher Routis is still awaiting international clearance following the completion of his deal last week and will not be involved.

Striker Aaron Mclean is expected to start on the bench again as he works his way back to full fitness following a calf strain.
