Our prediction for this League 1 match:
The Wham Stadium will host Saturday’s League One game between Accrington and Morecambe. The Accy Stanley have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team beating both Cheltenham and Bristol Rovers in the last two league fixtures, and you should know that they are eyeing their third consecutive clean sheet in the process. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Morecambe.
The Shrimps, on the other hand, are stuck in the relegation zone with only seven points in their pocket. Courtney Duffus remains in the recovery room, while both Ashley Hunter and Max Melbourne will be assessed ahead of the kick-off. Anyhow, home win should be considered as Accrington have been in a much better form in recent weeks than Morecambe. You should know that the Accy Stanley are undefeated in the previous five meetings with the Shrimps.
