Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Morecambe and Cheltenham square off against each other at the Mazuma Stadium in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. Morecambe were on the verge of beating Bolton on Tuesday, but the Trotters eventually saved one point in the stoppage time. The Shrimps are desperate to put an end to their nine-game winless run in the English third tier, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against Cheltenham.
The Robins, on the other hand, are stuck in the middle of the table, with the lack of motivation in the season finale. Since the hosts want this win more than the visitors, we are tempted to put our money on the relegation-threatened side. There are no fresh injury worries in the away side, while Aaron Wildig has joined Ryan McLaughlin in Morecambe’s recovery room.
