Our prediction for this League 1 match:
Saturday’s football game at DW Stadium pits together Wigan and Morecambe, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the season finale. The Latics are eyeing automatic promotion, but MK Dons are still breathing down their neck. Anyhow, home win should be considered as their Saturday’s rivals experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-0 loss to Shrewsbury Town. All Jordan Cousins, Thelo Aasgaard, and Scott Smith are likely to miss the game with injuries, speaking of the home side.
The Shrimps, on the other hand, are sitting in the relegation zone ahead of Matchday 39, and given their poor run of results (0-1-3), we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Wigan’s party at the DW Stadium. Both Cooney and Ayunga are pushing for a start as Derek Adams should opt to make changes to the team that suffered the midweek loss.
Highlighted Player (Jason Kerr):
Jason Kerr is a professional footballer who plays for St Johnstone as a defender. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on February 6, 1997, Jason Kerr is a product of the St Johnstone football academy. He started his senior career in 2014, and after ending his loan spells with East Fife and Queen of the South, he returned to the McDiarmid Park outfit in 2018.
He made his debut with the Saints in the Scottish Cup game against Albion Rovers on January 29, 2019. Jason Kerr has six caps with the Scotland U21 team, but he has yet to receive a call-up for the senior team.
He scored his first goal for St Johnstone in a 4-1 defeat to Rangers on February 27, 2018. His primary position on the field is a centre-back, but he is capable of producing good displays as a central midfielder as well. His preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 15 shirt at St Johnstone.
Highlighted Team (Morecambe):
Based in Lancashire, England, Morecambe are a professional club that compete in the League 2. The Shrimps were founded in 1920, and they welcome their home rivals at Globe Arena. The venue, which was opened in August, 2010, can hold up to 6,476 people.
Morecambe wear red shirts and red shorts when playing in front of home fans, while yellow is the dominant colour of their away kit. Fellow Lancashire-based club Accrington Stanley are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals. The Shrimps have rivalries with the likes of Lancaster City, Fleetwood Town, Barrow, Kendal Town, and Southport as well.
In 1974 Morecambe won the FA Trophy as they defeated Dartford 2-1 in the title game, and 14 years later they lifted the Conference League Cup trophy. The Shrimps secured promotion into the Football League with a 2-1 win over Exeter City in the 2007 play-offs final.
