Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Morecambe and Stevenage go head to head at Globe Arena in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. Morecambe aim to climb to the playoffs berth, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the Globe Arena clash. It has to be noted that the Shrimps are eyeing their only second home win of the season.
The Boro, on the other hand, defeated Concord after penalties in the FA Cup at the weekend, but they made a very slow start to the new League Two season. Stevenage have been slipping down the standings week by week, and seeing that Morecambe are eager to make it to the playoffs, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last encounter in a competitive match Stevenage defeated Morecambe 1-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
