Our prediction for this League 2 match:
After sharing the spoils with Stockport and Notts County respectively on Tuesday evening, both Morecambe and Bradford City will look to return to winning ways when they lock horns at The Mazuma Stadium. The Shrimps are eyeing their second home win of the season, but keep in mind that they had no more than one shot on target in the goalless draw with Notts County. There are no fresh injury concerns in the home team ahead of Saturday’s match.
The Bantams, on the other hand, had a chance to seal the victory at Edgeley Park, but experienced Andy Cook failed to convert a penalty kick. Despite struggling to find his goalscoring touch in the new League Two campaign, the 32-year-old should continue leading the line for the visiting team. Anyhow, Bradford are more of a team than Morecambe and we predict that the visitors are going to showcase their quality on the field.
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.
