Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Fleetwood will be aiming to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Cambridge United when they take on Morecambe on Matchday 34. The Cod Army have been impressive at the back of late, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence in Saturday’s clash as well. Barring any fresh injury worries, Scott Brown is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the U’s.
The Shrimps, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 3-0 loss to Peterborough, with the team beating Port Vale 1-0 on Tuesday evening. Since Morecambe looked solid at the back in the midweek clash as well, we believe that under 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. Cole Stockton limped off with injury against the Valiants, with Arthur Gnahoua likely to step up. In their last meeting in the League One the two sides played out a 1-1 draw.
