Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Crown Ground will host Saturday’s football game between Accrington and Morecambe. The Accy Stanley aim to make amends for a 2-1 loss to Ipswich Town, with the team eyeing their first win of the year. The good news for the hosts is that defender Ross Sykes returns to the starting XI after missing the last league fixture through suspension. The Shrimps, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-2 win over Wycombe.
Morecambe are determined to escape the relegation zone, and seeing that they will go for a win as well, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Cole Stockton, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late, will be the man to watch in the away team. In the first half of the season the two teams played out a thrilling 3-3 draw, which is yet another reason why we are tempted to put our money on BTTS.
