Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by the EFL Cup triumph over Grimsby, Mansfield Town will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Morecambe on Matchday 2. The Yellows have been impressive in front of goal of late and we are positive that they will adopt yet another attack-oriented approach against the Shrimps. The good news for the hosts is that Calum MacDonald is back from suspension.
Morecambe, on the other hand, aim to recover from the unlucky EFL Cup loss to Rotherham. The Shrimps, though, are not regarded as good travellers and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Mansfield Town’s party at One Call Stadium. In their last meeting at the venue the Yellows defeated the Shrimps, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. There are no fresh injury worries in the away team.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Bowery):
Born in Nottingham, England, on July 2, 1991, Jordan Bowery is a professional footballer who plays for Mansfield Town. Bowery played for a number of English clubs, but we should mentioned the notable ones only.
The Mansfield No. 9 was a part of the likes of Aston Villa, Bradford City, Rotherham United, and Crewe Alexandra in the past. Jordan Bowery joined the Yellows in the summer of 2020, signing for the club on a free transfer. He made his Mansfield Town debut in the League two in a goalless draw with Tranmere Rovers on September 12, 2020.
Bowery scored his first goal for the Yellows in a 2-2 draw with Leyton Orient on September 19, 2020. Centre-forward is the position that suits him the most, but he is used as both left and right winger as well. His preferred foot is right. Jordan Bowery has never played for the England national team.
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.
