Morecambe midfielder Neil Wainwright has been ruled out for the rest of the season with an Achilles injury. Wainwright had been suffering with the problem for a number of weeks and was substituted at half-time in Morecambe's last two league games. Shrimps boss Sammy McIlroy told the club's website: "It's a big blow for us and for Neil. "Being the lad he is, he has been desperate to play through the pain and he has done well despite suffering." McIlroy added: "He has been one of our most consistent players in the past few months and has done a great job for us. "But we don't want him to make things any worse because we want to make sure he is ready for the pre-season.''
