Shrimps look to build on home comforts

It’s the first of two trips to the LNER Stadium for the Shrimps in the space of a few days, with the Club also heading to Lincolnshire on Tuesday evening for the Papa John’s Trophy.

Morecambe will be looking for just their second away win of the season in the league, and look to build on their encouraging home form at the Mazuma Stadium, which has seen the Shrimps beat Barnsley and draw with Derby County and Portsmouth in recent weeks. 

‘’Lincoln is a big club in this division with average gates of eight or nine thousand, and they’ve been in League One for a number of years now,’’ said manager, Derek Adams.

‘’It’s up to us to go there and try and win. They’ve drawn seven games at home this season, we understand that, and have come off a very good point last week against (league leaders) Plymouth Argyle.

‘’We have a bit of illness, injury and a suspension to contend with, so we won’t quite have the luxury that we had if bringing players off the bench. It’s always nice to have the opportunity to take on three players, to help us in the last 15 minutes of the game. 

‘’It’s a team game, and the beauty of being able to make five substitutions is when we have a strong bench, we can make changes. 

‘’We’ve dropped 16 points from winning positions this year, and that would have taken us a good way up the league. 

‘’We’ve got players coming back into the team now who can give us that extra dimension going forward.

‘’The likes of Caleb Watts and Adam Mayor coming in, along with Gnahoua, Connolly, Stockton and Phillips, it’s really helping us now. ‘’

Defender Max Melbourne and midfielder Jake Taylor could be involved on their comeback from injury, but winger Dylan Connolly will miss the game through suspension after picking up his fifth caution of the season last weekend.
