Jim Bentley: Fears injury setback

Sky Bet

Morecambe manager Jim Bentley admits he may have to look for a loan signing if his injury fears are confirmed over Laurence Wilson.

The left-back needs treatment after suffering damage in Saturday's win at Cambridge following a late tackle from Tom Elliott and has given Bentley a headache at the back, with his resources already stretched.

"Initial thoughts are that it doesn't look good and he may have suffered ligament damage which would rule him out for a couple of months," Bentley told the club website. "It is a real blow because he has been brilliant for us this season and has been enjoying his football.

"It may mean that we might have to go and look to bring someone in on loan because with Ryan Edwards still out and Andy Parrish missing, we are struggling a bit for numbers at that end of the park. We will get the full verdict on the injury over the next couple of days and take it from there."
