Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Salford will be looking to build on a 3-0 win over Bradford City when they take on Morecambe in yet another home fixture. The Lions are determined to secure promotion to the League One, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to turn their dream into reality. Salford are a real force to be reckoned with at home, and you should bear in mind that they are undefeated at their Penninsula Stadium in the 2020/21 season.
A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be talented midfielder Luke Burgess, who scored a brace in the victory over Bradford. Morecambe, on the other hand, have been sharing the spoils with their rivals a lot of late, with the team drawing with Exeter, Stevenage, and Scunthorpe in the previous three league fixtures. Since Salford have turned their Penninsula Stadium into a real fortress, we predict that the visitors will return home empty-handed.
