Football - Devitt starts ban

On-loan midfielder Jamie Devitt will begin a three-match suspension when Morecambe entertain Oxford at the Globe Arena.

PA Sport Report

Devitt was dismissed late on in Tuesday's 1-1 draw at Exeter for an apparent head-butt during a huge melee over a non-penalty call which angered the hosts.

Fortunately for the Shrimps, they do have Alex Kenyon back from a three-game ban and he will be expected to slot straight into the midfield.

Boss Jim Bentley is hopeful on full-back Shaun Beeley's knee injury and striker Jack Redshaw's illness but the game may come too soon for winger Marcus Marshall (hamstring).
