Team News: Morecambe v Bradford

The Shrimps started impressively at the weekend and will be looking to cause another cup upset tonight.

Morecambe are no strangers to cup upset and the hope is that another can be sprung against league 1 opponents Bradford City this evening when we meet at the Globe Arena.

A convincing three-nil win at Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday didn't come at the cost of any fresh injury concerns so Jim Bentley has the same squad to select from.

Ryan Edwards (finger) continues to be sidelined for the Shrimps though.

Bradford will have to make at least one change from their three-two winning side against Coventry City as on loan 'keeper Jordan Pickford doesn't have permission from Sunderland to play, Matt Urwin could deputise. Billy Knott and Billy Clarke have 'knocks' and might miss out.

Last season we knocked out eventual league 1 champions Wolverhampton Wanderers at this stage, we'll like another higher league scalp!

We're without a win in five against Bradford though, losing two and drawing the other three of the league 2 meetings with Bradford not beaten in the last four Globe Arena meetings with three being drawn.

If it ends in a draw tonight it will mean a penalty shootout, either way a winner will be seen but will this be us?

This site is looking for an editor (at least a contributor or blogger), so if you're a fan that can offer us a genuine opinion we would love to share it with the masses!
