Morecambe striker Garry Thompson is expected to be out until Christmas after rupturing an Achilles tendon in Saturday's loss at Crewe.

The 37-year-old was stretchered off in the 14th minute after sustaining the injury in the 1-0 defeat.

"I just wanted to get off the pitch, so I was crawling towards the bench," said Thompson.

He rejoined the League Two side on a one-year deal in June 2017 after being released by Wycombe Wanderers.
