Morecambe vs Yeovil preview
Last Updated: 02/11/18 12:51pm
Alex Kenyon could be pushing for a return to the Morecambe starting line-up when the Shrimps host Yeovil on Saturday.
The midfielder made his comeback from a month-long absence with a knee injury as a late substitute during the draw at Newport last weekend. New signing Florent Cuvelier was also on the bench in south Wales but did not get on to the pitch and he will be hoping to be involved this time.
Veteran Kevin Ellison staked his claim for a recall to the team by scoring Morecambe's equalising goal at Newport shortly after his introduction as a substitute.
Yeovil hope to have James Bailey and Francois Zoko back for the trip to the Globe Arena. Both players have resumed training after knee injuries as the Glovers' injury issues show some signs of easing.
Gary Warren and Jordan Green are waiting for scan results on their injuries, though neither is expected to be serious. Captain Omar Sowunmi (ankle) is out for up to three months while Diallang Jaiyesimi (knee) will not play again this season.
The six league meetings between Morecambe and Yeovil Town have produced a total of 25 goals (4.2 per game).
