The Shrimps have failed in their appeal against Sam Lavelle’s two match ban for ‘Successful Deception of a Match Official’.
Lavelle will be unavailable for Morecambe’s Emirates FA Cup tie at New Meadow versus Shrewsbury Town on Saturday and the SkyBet League 2 fixture versus Coventry City at the Globe Arena on 9th December.
Lavelle said; “I feel a bit let down as at the time the ball came in and I was aware that both myself and their keeper attempted to play the ball and having got there first I felt there was contact as I pushed the ball past him.
“Looking back at the video it does look a little soft but in real time at speed, it is easier to get knocked off balance and at the end of the day if you feel contact in the box you go down.
“Adding to the disappointment is the fact that I’ve now lost my place in the side after having to be patient and work hard to get in there.
“I feel I’ve done okay since coming in (to the starting eleven) and was relishing the chance to make that position my own.”
