Morecambe boss Sammy McIlroy bemoans missed opportunity

Morecambe manager Sammy McIlroy has admitted that he is frustrated by his team's form in League Two.

Tuesday's defeat by Macclesfield was the Shrimps' seventh home loss in the league since moving to the Globe Arena in August.

McIlroy told BBC Radio Lancashire: "We're not consistent. One or two of the players need a breather.

"I don't know if it's pressure of what we're in. I'm going to be thinking very carefully about my team for Saturday."

The defeat by Macc leaves Morecambe 19th in League Two, nine points clear of the bottom two, with eight games remaining.

One player likely to come back in to contention to face Wycombe on Saturday is goalkeeper and captain Barry Roche. The Irishman has missed the last four matches with a thigh injury.

He is expected to replace on-loan Joe Anyon if he comes through a reserve match at Macclesfield unscathed.
