Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Grimsby will be aiming to put an end to their four-game losing run in League Two when they take on Morecambe on Saturday afternoon. The Mariners do not seem to be at the top of their game, but this clash could be the turning point for the home side. There are no fresh injury concerns in the home team ahead of the visit of Morecambe.
The Shrimps, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 1-0 loss to Barrow. Derek Adams’ men have registered three wins in the previous four away matches, which is probably the main reason why we predict they will grab something from Saturday’s showdown. Morecambe defender Donald Love is pushing for a start, with Joel Senior likely to drop to the bench. There are no fresh selection worries in the away team ahead of the trip to North East Lincolnshire.
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.
