Morecambe boss hopes to cause an FA Cup shock

Both teams know each other well, having been in the same division for four of the seven seasons from 2017-18 to 2022-23.
Last season brought a win apiece in League One, while Lincoln took the honours in the EFL Trophy.
Both clubs have started well with the Shrimps sixth in League Two and their hosts ninth in the division above despite the departure of manager Mark Kennedy last month.
“Saturday is one where we have to go and cause a shock as Lincoln are at home and they’re a League One side,” Adams insisted.
“They might have a temporary manager but they still play with the same focus and formation.
“They have done really well and they are a well-run football club, but we have to go there and get the better of them.
“Getting to the next round of the cup will be massively important for us and that’s the focus.”
As well as a place in round two, the winners are also rewarded with £41,000 in prize money.
It would be a handy windfall for Adams, who has stated his desire to strengthen his squad in January and build on their fine start to the season.
That has come at a cost, however, with keeper Stuart Moore now out for a lengthy period after an operation on a hip flexor muscle injury.
Adam Smith is now the only senior keeper available, backed up by youngster George Pedley.
Adams said: “Stuart has got between 14 and 16 weeks out, which is a long time.
“Adam has got a lot of experience, though we do have the option of bringing in an out-of-contract keeper – which isn’t easy – or taking in an emergency loan.”
The Shrimps will assess Chris Stokes after he missed the Barrow trip with hamstring tightness.
