Football - Wright return boosts Shrimps

Morecambe will be boosted by the return of midfielder Andrew Wright as they look to cause another Capital One Cup upset against Newcastle.

PA Sport Report

Having already disposed of Wolves in the first round and kept their unbeaten home run going with a 2-0 win over Exeter on Saturday, the Shrimps are in good spirits ahead of the visit of Alan Pardew's men.

Wright has served his one-match ban after being sent off against Portsmouth while goalkeeper Barry Roche (bug), Kevin Ellison and Marcus Marshall (both hamstring) returned to action against the Grecians after being sidelined.

Their first-round hero Ryan Williams looks set to start once more but Jack Redshaw remains out with his long-term hip injury.
