Robbie Threlfall and Andy Fleming will both be hoping for a place in Morecambe's starting XI when they host Carlisle in the second round of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
Defender Threlfall made his return to the matchday squad at the weekend following a three-match suspension, but had to make do with a place on the bench as the Shrimps came back from three-down to record a 4-3 win against Chesterfield.
Having recovered from a freak foot injury, midfielder Fleming also featured from the bench, but will be hoping for more match time in Tuesday's cup clash.
A fully-fit Marcus Marshall (hamstring) could return to contention, but Jack Redshaw (hip) is still some way short of match fitness.
Carlisle's new signing Nathan Eccleston is expected to make his first start for the club.
Eccleston, signed on loan from Blackpool last week, stepped off the bench in the weekend draw against Shrewsbury and with Lee Miller (calf) and Lewis Guy (throat infection) both sidelined, is likely to be included in the starting line-up.
Manager Graham Kavanagh has no new injury or suspension problems and is not expected to make too many changes, but teenage midfielders Brad Potts and Dave Symington, both second-half substitutes at the weekend, are pushing for recalls.
Carlisle are the most successful club in the competition's history, winning twice and finishing runners-up on four occasions.
