Availability Hopes

29 October 2015

Jim Bentley is hopeful for Shrimps trio to be available for trip to Home Park.

SHRIMPS’ Jim Bentley is hopeful that Shaun Miller, Andy Fleming and Laurence Wilson will make the long trip to Home Park this Saturday.

All three missed the game against Orient last week but Bentley is hoping to see them travel for the game against the league leaders this weekend.

He said: “Laurence Wilson is back in training and we hope to see Shaun Miller and Andy Fleming stepping things up as the week goes on too which will be a big boost for us.

“We missed Shaun on Saturday because he has been flying. He's the man in form in League 2 and when a striker is on the run he is on he is bound to be a loss.

“He's been brilliant in October but he had a slight knock during the week and said he was feeling a bit tight before the game.

“We could have risked it but I don't want to put him in a position where he might be out of action for longer than necessary. With Jack Ryan returning to Preston we only had six subs as it was and with a squad the size of ours we have to look after our players.''

Bentley is hoping the Shrimps can maintain their excellent away form against a side being hotly tipped for automatic promotion.

Said Bentley: “We have only lost once away this season so far and that was on the opening day of the season. We know we are in for a tough afternoon but we have produced some great performances on our travels this season and I can''t see any reason why we can't cause them problems on Saturday.''
