Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over Forest Green, Morecambe will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they take on Accrington on Tuesday evening. The Shrimps have regained a much-needed confidence, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to book their place in the playoffs at the end of the season. Talented forward Michael Mellon should keep his place up front after finding the net in the last league match.
The Accy Stanley, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from back-to-back defeats to Tranmere and Stockport and given their poor form, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the home team. It has to be noted that Accrington suffered four defeats in the previous five league matches. All Woods, Quirk, and Pickles are out of contention with injuries for the visiting 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.
