Morecambe boss Jim Bentley has problems at centre-back.

Will Haining has injured a hand while Andy Parrish remains a doubt after a recurrence of a thigh strain.

Teenager Chris Doyle replaced Haining during last Friday's 2-0 derby defeat at Accrington and could be in line for a first senior start.

Bentley finds himself particularly short in the heart of defence after Nick Fenton was released from the club last weekend.

Lewis Alessandra hopes to be available in attack having missed out due to a muscle strain at the Store First Stadium.

Ahead of the final home game of the season, Bentley is keen for his Jekyll and Hyde Shrimps to give their fans something to shout about.

He told the Morecambe Visitor: "I am convinced that if we had been as consistent as we should have been we would be higher up the table than we are now and it is something we need to work on next year."

Torquay boss Alan Knill is expected to name the same starting line-up that ran out 3-2 winners in Tuesday's thrilling victory over Barnet when they make the long trip to the Shrimps.

The Gulls' League Two survival fate is now in their own hands and six points from Saturday's clash and the visit of Bristol Rovers to Plainmoor next weekend would guarantee safety.

And Michael Poke is set to continue in goal after overcoming a knee injury to put in an impressive display against Edgar Davids' men.

Winger Danny Stevens (groin) made his return to the first-team squad on Tuesday night but might have to make do with a place on the bench once more, while midfielder Craig Easton (calf) is close to a return.

If Knill does decide to freshen up his side Ashley Yeoman could get the nod after a lively substitute appearance in midweek. Nathan Craig and Tom Cruise are also options for the former Scunthorpe boss.
