Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tranmere Rovers will be looking to recover from a massive 4-0 defeat to Crawley Town when they host Morecambe at their Prenton Park. Tranmere continue with their old habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels, and you should bear in mind that they are eyeing their third home win of the season. Mark Ellis is sidelined with injury for the hosts ahead of the visit of Morecambe.
The Shrimps, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from back-to-back defeats to Forest Green and Carlisle United. Morecambe are on a four-game winless run in the League Two, and seeing that Tranmere Rovers have been producing fine display on home soil this term, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last encounter at Prenton Park the Super Whites recorded a 3-1 win over the Shrimps.
Highlighted Player (Jay Spearing):
After impressing in Liverpool’s youth academy, Jay Spearing made 30 appearances in the league for the first team. However, the English midfielder was playing below expectations in the Premier League and, as a result, he was sent on loan to Leicester City in 2010.
Spearing played for Bolton Wanderers on loan as well and in 2013 he signed a permanent deal with the Trotters. He scored three goals, while providing six assists for his teammates in 37 appearances for Bolton in the 2016/2017 League One campaign and, no doubt, he helped the club secure promotion to the Championship.
Jay Spearing, who was born in Wallasey, England on November 25, 1988, has yet to make his England debut. His main position is defensive midfield, but he is capable of playing as both central and left midfielder as well. Jay Spearing has a deal with Bolton Wanderers which expires in the summer of 2021.
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.
