Ellison: Suspended for Shrimps
Team news ahead of Tuesday night's League Two clash between Morecambe and Chesterfield at the Globe Arena.
Morecambe are without Kevin Ellison.
The winger was sent off for violent conduct in an off-the-ball incident with Cheltenham's Steve Elliott during the 2-0 defeat on Friday night.
Boss Jim Bentley could replace Ellison with Stuart Drummond or Izak Reid in the midfield, as his side look to end a run of three successive defeats.
The Shrimps have received a boost with the news that striker Jack Redshaw could be fit enough to start again having recovered from a dead leg.
Redshaw was replaced at half-time during the 3-2 defeat at Plymouth and was only fit enough for an eight minute cameo from the bench at Cheltenham but is likely to replace Lewis Alessandra in the starting line-up.
Chesterfield caretaker manager Tommy Wright will have an unchanged squad
Drew Talbot was nursing a knock from the 1-1 home draw against Torquay at the weekend but the midfielder trained on Monday and will be fit for consideration.
On-loan Blackburn winger Micah Evans made his debut as Talbot's 64th-minute replacement on Saturday and the 19-year-old could be pushing for a start on his return to Lancashire.
Wright, whose team are unbeaten in eight league games - drawing six of those - said during his pre-match press conference: "We've got a lot of positives to take from that run.
"It's always a case of get what you can away from home, and even at home, but we're definitely going there to try to win the game, we always do.
"But it'll be a difficult game; they've got one or two players who I know from my time at Oldham. I know if we're not up for it it'll be difficult, but we've been up for every game so far."
