Morecambe v Swindon preview
Last Updated: 07/09/18 11:19am
Morecambe forward A-Jay Leitch-Smith could make his return to action in Saturday's Sky Bet League Two clash with Swindon.
Leitch-Smith missed last weekend's loss at Bury due a knee problem and was not involved in Tuesday's Checkatrade Trophy defeat at Carlisle.
Goalkeeper Mark Halstead is a doubt after coming off early on during the Carlisle game having sustained a bruised hip. Andrew Tutte, who has been absent for the last four matches in all competitions, is still out injured.

With Lawrence Vigouroux away on international duty with Chile, Swindon are set to have Luke McCormick in goal. Defender Luke Woolfenden is poised to be a part of the matchday squad for the first time following his arrival on loan from Ipswich last Friday.
There is a question mark over Dion Conroy (knee), while Kaiyne Woolery and Chris Robertson remain sidelined. Toumani Diagouraga and James Dunne will be unavailable once again as they complete their three-match suspensions.
Morecambe have not won a match against Swindon in four attempts in the Football League (D1 L3).
Morecambe have only managed one goal in their four league meetings with Swindon (1-1 draw in March 2018), while the Robins have scored six.
Morecambe have lost three of their last four home league games (W1), as many as their previous 15 combined.
Swindon Town midfielder Michael Doughty has been directly involved in more goals (seven; five goals, two assists) than any other player in League Two this season, with four of his five goals coming from the penalty spot.
Phil Brown has won just one of his eight matches against Morecambe as a manager in all competitions (D2 L5), a 3-0 victory in a FA Cup first round tie as Southend boss in November 2013.
