Morecambe Preview

11 March 2014

County on the road to Lancashire

Newport County AFC face their second away fixture in 4 days as the squad travel to The Globe Arena to face a Morecambe side buoyed by their recent 2-1 victory over Southend United over the weekend.

Manager Justin Edinburgh will have Max Porter back in contention after the midfielder missed the 2-1 defeat at Mansfield on Saturday. Ismail Yakubu (thigh injury) and Andy Sandell (bug) are unavailable. 

Edinburgh moved swiftly to replace goalkeeper Elliott Parish after the Bristol City loanee's spell ended on Sunday. Ian McLoughlin has been signed from MK Dons on a month's Emergency Loan and goes straight into contention for this vital Sky Bet League 2 clash.

Morecambe are 1 point and 2 places below County in 13th place of SKy Bet League 2 although County do have a game in hand. 

Kevin Ellison was the danger man at Rodney Parade last September as 'The Shrimpers' came away with a 3-2 win and Ellison scored Morecambe's opener on Saturday to be joint top scorer with Amond. 

1,608 were in attendance at The Globe on Saturday and only the Peter McGuigan Stand (Blocks A & B) will be open for County fans tonight with pay on the gate prices as £19 (Adults), £15 (concessions) and £6 (juveniles 5-18).
