Shrimps relishing Burnley battle

23 August 2010 10:30
Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy has no new injury or suspension worries ahead of the Carling Cup second-round clash at home to Burnley. Defender Will Haining could be available again after missing Saturday's 3-2 defeat at Burton to be with his wife after she gave birth in midweek. The Shrimps are eagerly anticipating the visit of their Lancashire rivals after dumping Coventry out in the previous round. Assistant boss Mark Lillis sees no reason why his side cannot claim another scalp against Championship opposition at the new Globe Arena. Lillis said: "It is a great draw for the club and will help continue the feelgood factor surrounding the new ground. "Burnley are bound to bring a big following and it should be a cracking night again."
