Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Wrexham will be aiming to make amends for a 2-0 loss to Accrington when they take on Morecambe in the League Two round 19. Wrexham are seen as one of the main candidates for automatic promotion, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to secure a top-three finish. Experienced attacker Ollie Palmer is pushing for a start, while there are no fresh injury concerns in the home team.
The Shrimps, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Barrow and Grimsby in the previous two league matches and given Wrexham’s fine home record (6-2-1), we predict that the visitors are going to return to Lancashire with their hands empty. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team. It has to be noted that Morecambe have already suffered five defeats on the road in the 2023/2024 League Two campaign.
