Morecambe's great start to the season saw us dealt a blow with the injury to Laurence Wilson.

He left back, who returned to the club this summer after a successful trial, was injured in the win over Cambridge United with an injury lay-off of some two-months or more on the cards for the 27-year-old?

The full extent of his injury will be known later this week but suspected ligament damage is expected to be confirmed.

Keen to keep the momentum going, after a flying start to the league 2 season, Jim Bentley has told the Visitor that he is working on loan deal to bring in a new left back to soften this blow, but also knows what a blow it is to lose Wilson.

He said: 'I'm trying to get a left back in to replace him because the initial signs are that it doesn't look good.

'It's a real shame for him because he's been excellent for us so far this season. I think he's grown up a bit since he was last with us.

'He's got more life experience. He's got married and had kids and has just come in and been brilliant.'

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!
