The Shrimps travel to Rodney Parade this weekend to face Michael Flynn's Newport County as Morecambe enter their final 10 fixtures of the 2019/20 campaign.

"We're looking forward it," said boss, Derek Adams.

"We had a good game at home last week against Crewe following a good point away at Carlisle.

"We passed the ball very well, created good openings and got a good goal.

"Newport's last couple of results haven't been the best but you look at their form guide over the past eight games, they're sitting around mid table.

"That tells you that they've had a good season. They probably over achieved last season to get to the play-off final and sometimes when that happens people expect it of you every year. I think Michael Flynn has done a very good job at Newport.

"Adam (Phillips) is obviously suspended so we've got one position to fill there.

"We did appeal the decision, which failed. We felt that Adam had made a challenge to trip the player rather than any serious foul play but that was thrown out.

"You see challenges week after week that are very similar to Adam's to we feel hard done by.

"Moving forward, looking at the players that can come in, we have a variety of players that can play in that position. We've got Brewitt, we've got Kenyon, we've got O'Sullivan who can all fill in at central midfield."
