MOREAMBE boss Sammy McIlroy believes that inspirational skipper Barry Roche will be out of action for two weeks after picking up a thigh injury.

Roche was due to miss Tuesday night’s game at Bury because of the injury which he picked up in training on Friday.

He was to be replaced by new loan singing Joe Anyon, who joined the Shrimps from Lincoln City on Monday as cover until April 3.

McIlroy said: “Barry first felt his injury on Friday but wanted to play on Saturday and aggravated it in the first half.

“It is best to give it a rest now before it gets worse and we decided to bring Joe Anyon in as cover.”
