Accrington boss James Beattie will select from an unchanged squad for the local derby with Morecambe.

Stanley remain without defender Michael Liddle, who has a minor hamstring complaint, and young striker Marcus Carver.

Neither player is believed to be too far away from a return, with Carver progressing well following shin surgery and Liddle's problem not considered too serious.

Beattie will have the same group to select from as the one which lost 2-1 at Rochdale over the weekend, with only a stoppage-time winner denying Stanley a point against one of the division's high fliers.

Andy Fleming completes a two-match suspension when Morecambe make the short trip to Accrington.

The midfielder has been awarded 10 yellow cards this season and therefore misses out again after being banned for Saturday's 1-1 draw with Dagenham.

Full-back Shaun Beeley remains another absentee, with his strained hamstring set to keep him on the sidelines for a couple of weeks.

Shrimps boss Jim Bentley reported a couple of knocks to unnamed players following the weekend's draw, with midfielder Stewart Drummond having to be withdrawn through a foot injury in the first period.
