Jordan Mustoe is unlikely to feature in Morecambe’s season-ending clash with Bury at the Globe Arena.
On-loan full-back Mustoe, borrowed from Wigan, has a hamstring strain which forced him off in last Saturday’s 3-0 win over AFC Wimbledon, a win which secured the Shrimps’ Football League status for another season.
Midfielder Stewart Drummond will also remain on the sidelines after a toe injury earlier in the campaign brought his season to a premature end back in March.
Boss Jim Bentley could look to experiment with relegation now not a possibility while on-loan midfielder Jamie Devitt, who Morecambe are keen on for a permanent deal, may make his last appearance.
Reice Charles-Cook could be Bury’s goalkeeper against Morecambe after the club confirmed Brian Jensen would be leaving the JD Stadium this summer.
Ex-Burnley stopper Jensen, 38, has been the first-choice keeper for the majority of the season and started last Saturday’s 4-4 draw with Portsmouth. However, with Charles-Cook due to stay with David Flitcroft’s side next season and Jensen seeking pastures new, the Shakers may opt to pick the former Arsenal trainee who has just one professional start to his credit.
Daniel Nardiello completes the two-match suspension which brought the top scorer’s season to a premature end while on-loan hat-trick hero Hallam Hope, who scored Bury’s first league treble since 1999 against Pompey, could play his final game for the club.
The Shakers announced defender Phil Picken’s retirement on Thursday due to a troublesome knee injury while loanee Chris Hussey was recalled by parent-club Burton this week.
