19 June 2017

Alex Neil's men make the short trip north to face Jim Bentley's side in a 7.30pm kick-off at the Globe Arena, looking to build up their fitness against EFL opposition for the first time.

The manager said after Saturday's victory over Stockport County that he would be liekly to give players at least an hour of match time in one of the games, with the team also heading to Accrington Stanley on Wednesday night.

Josh Harrop, Calum Woods and John Welsh are the outfield players still to feature yet this pre-season, other than long term casualty, skipper Tom Clarke; with Declan Rudd also likely to still be out with the injury collected in the opening minutes at Bamber Bridge.

Tom Barkhuizen will make a return to the Globe Arena for the first time since his winter move to Deepdale and he and Callum Robinson will be looking to continue their record of having scored in both of the pre-season fixtures played so far.

The game sees fans able to pay cash on the turnstiles or buy on the night with card at the Morecambe ticket office. Tickets for both the standing area, behind the goal, or the main stand seating area are priced the same.

Match Reports

Morecambe 0 PNE 2

18 July 2017

Alex Neil’s side kept up their 100 per cent pre-season record with a dominant performance against Morecambe at the Globe Arena.

Goals from Tom Barkhuizen and Ben Pearson, either side of half-time, saw the Lilywhites to a 2-0 victory against Jim Bentley’s men.

Barkhuizen scored for the third consecutive game, firing home with the outside of his right foot after being slid though by Daryl Horgan and Pearson fired home a superb 25 yard strike in the second half to cap an excellent individual display.

The North End manager upped the workload of his squad, giving ten players an hour of game time, with Daniel Johnson completing the full 90 against the Shrimps.

It was a performance where the possession stats told the full tale, with the home side having to wait until 83 minutes for a single attempt on the PNE goal, by which time the visitors had rained in 20 efforts at Morecambe’s trialist goalkeeper.

Chances started early for the blue clad Championship side, Marnick Vermijl seeing a drilled effort blocked for a corner. From another of the nine corner kicks for North End, Daryl Horgan’s deep ball found its way to Jordan Hugill 12 yards out. His goalbound effort was well blocked in the six yard box, falling back to the No.9, but his rebound strike was over the bar.

But the opener came on 36 minutes as Barkhuizen raced onto a threaded pass from Horgan in a left hand channel and fired hard and low with the outside of his right hand boot past the ’keeper and in off the right hand post.

The Irish assister for the first goal almost added a second on 51 minutes. Driving in from the left he found his way to the edge of the box before curling a shot just inches past the right hand upright.

The lead was doubled 11 minutes after the interval as more North End pressure resulted in a ball coming out to Pearson, who had dominated the game from just in front of the back four, and he fired an arrowing effort into the bottom right corner of the goal from 25 yards out.

Both teams made a number of changes in the final 30 minutes, but it was still the Lilywhites who dominated the chances, with Johnson probing and almost creating an opening for a lively Stevie May with five minutes to go, however, it remained two and another victory.

Morecambe line-up: Trialist, McGowan (Kenyon, 60), Thompson (Jordan, 70), Oliver (Brough, 60), Ellison (Yawson, 83), Conlan (Trialist 4, 60), Trialist 2 (Fleming, 60), Turner (Lund, 60), Trialist 3 (Campbell, 60), Rose (c), Hedley (Hawley, 60).

PNE line-up: Maxwell (Hudson, 60), Vermijl (Grimshaw, 60), Cunningham (c) (Earl, 60), Pearson (Browne, 60), Boyle (Huntington, 60), Davies (Spurr, 60), Barkhuizen (Meulensteen, 60), Johnson, Hugill (May, 60), Robinson (Doyle, 60), Horgan (Pringle, 60).
