Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Globe Arena will host Tuesday’s football match between Morecambe and Mansfield Town, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table ahead of day 7. Following three consecutive wins in the League Two, Morecambe suffered a heavy 4-0 loss to Crawley in their last league match. The Shrimps are eager to get back on course as soon as possible, and we are positive that they will fight tooth and nail against Mansfield Town.
The Yellows, on the other hand, aim to put an end to their six-game winless run. Mansfield do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the trip to Lancashire, and given Morecambe’s form at the start of the season, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home team. It has to be noted, though, that Morecambe midfielder Alex Kenyon is likely to miss the match with injury.
