Peter Murphy: Morecambe captain out for 12 weeks
Morecambe captain Peter Murphy will be out for 12 weeks after damaging knee ligaments in Saturday's opening League Two game at Hartlepool.
The 25-year-old midfielder joined the Shrimps from Wycombe this summer.
But in the eighth minute of his competitive debut at Victoria Park he suffered a grade three tear of his medial collateral ligament in his right knee.
Morecambe expect Murphy to be back in action around mid-November.
