Morecambe goalkeeper Barry Roche will miss the remainder of the League Two season with a hip injury.

The 32-year-old had been troubled by the problem in pre-season but had gone onto to feature 17 times this term.

The Shrimps have already re-signed Fleetwood keeper Scott Davies on a one-month loan to cover.

"It's a huge blow because Barry is a top keeper at this level and has had a great season so far," manager Jim Bentley told the club website.
