Ellison: Pushing for a start

Ellison: Pushing for a start

Team news ahead of Saturday's League Two clash between Morecambe and Aldershot at the Globe Arena.

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley could hand winger Kevin Ellison a starting role.

Bentley's men are in buoyant mood after recording three away wins inside a week, claiming victories at Hereford and Cheltenham in league combat and dumping Barnsley out of the Carling Cup.

Ellison came off the bench to score a last-gasp winner at Whaddon Road on Tuesday and could now start for the Shrimps.

The winger missed most of pre-season with a thigh injury, but Bentley said: "I put him on at half-time for his bite and experience and credit to him because it's been hard for him with the injury."

Midfielders Garry Hunter (heel) and Andy Fleming (ankle) have missed the last two games and will be assessed while Paul Scott remains the only long-term absentee.

Aldershot boss Dean Holdsworth has a fully-fit squad to choose from and is expected to keep faith with the same side who were beaten 1-0 at home by Torquay in midweek.

That means last season's Supporters' Player of the Year Luke Guttridge will keep his place in midfield.

The 29-year-old's 90 minutes against the Gulls was his first of the season after recovering from a knee injury and he should be fit enough to play his second match in five days despite tiring towards the end of the midweek encounter.

Danny Hylton and Michael Rankine have only scored one goal between them this season but should lead the attack.

Defender Alex Rodman will again have to be content with a place on the bench.
