Jim Bentley has options ahead of Morecambe’s League Two opener against Grimsby

Morecambe boss Jim Bentley has plenty of options ahead of their Sky Bet League Two opener against Grimsby on Saturday.

Striker A-Jay Leitch-Smith seems to be Bentley’s only major concern as he battles to overcome a hamstring problem.

The Shrimps lost 2-0 to Accrington in their final pre-season friendly of the summer but Bentley was happy with much of what he saw.

Morecambe spent a large part of last season flirting with the drop-zone in League Two but they eventually secured an 18th-placed finish.

Loan signing Liam Gibson is a doubt for Grimsby after he suffered a groin strain during a friendly against Scarborough Athletic.

Striker Harry Cardwell is set to miss out because of calf muscle trouble but Mariners boss Michael Jolley looks poised for some good news in other areas.

Defender Ludvig Ohman and recent recruit Moses Ogbu are expected to feature after missing Grimsby’s final summer friendly against Peterborough.

And Jolley is hopeful that striker Charles Vernam can overcome an ankle problem to be available for selection.
