Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by a 2-1 win over Crawley Town, Morecambe will look to move closer to the playoffs places when they take on Sutton on Saturday afternoon. The Shrimps quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Colchester United, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence, but they do not want to stop now. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be 25-year-old forward Gerard Garner, who scored a brace against the Red Devils.
Sutton, on the other hand, are sitting in the relegation zone with only 22 points on their account. The Amber and Chocolates failed to win the previous seven league matches, and given Morecambe’s fine performance in the triumph over Crawley Town, home win should definitely be considered this time out. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of the trip to Lancashire.
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.
