Football - Shrimps duo in feckoning

Robbie Threlfall and Andy Fleming will both be hoping for a place in Morecambe's starting XI when they host Carlisle in the second round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Defender Threlfall made his return to the matchday squad at the weekend following a three-match suspension, but had to make do with a place on the bench as the Shrimps came back from three-down to record a 4-3 win against Chesterfield.

Having recovered from a freak foot injury, midfielder Fleming also featured from the bench, but will be hoping for more match time in Tuesday's cup clash.

A fully-fit Marcus Marshall (hamstring) could return to contention, but Jack Redshaw (hip) is still some way short of match fitness.
