Football - Roche absent for Shrimps

Barry Roche must serve a one-match ban when Morecambe look to return to winning ways against Northampton.

The Shrimps' recent impressive form was checked when struggling Barnet ran out 4-1 winners at Underhill on Saturday.

Goalkeeper Roche was sent off for a professional foul on Luke Gambin before Daniel Lopez dispatched his second goal of the game to make it 3-1 from 1-0 down.

Andreas Arestidou is once again set to deputise for Roche, as he did earlier in the season when his team-mate was struck down by back problems.

Andy Parrish remained out with the thigh injury that has sidelined him in recent weeks and the defender will be assessed once more before Aidy Boothroyd's men arrive at the Globe Arena.
