Morecambe Form

Morecambe have gone only W1 D2 L1 so far this season in League Two, not great form, but they have been hard to score against. They haven’t conceded more than one goal in any of their games so far, but the big problem for the Shrimps is finding the goals themselves to put wins on the board. They have only the three goals on the board this season, which means that if their defence fails they are likely going to be in trouble.

Accrington Form

Stanley will expect to find themselves at least in the play off this season in League Two. They have a bright start going with a W2 D1 l1 record. Their only blip was an away defeat out at Yeovil, who are always hit and miss. So that was a surprise loss for Accrington, even though they still scored two goals in the match. Stanley have scored at least two goals in each of their four league games this season. They are just D1 L1 on the road though despite that.

Head to Head News

Accrington have lost just one of their last four visits to Morecambe now so they do have a bit of form over them. The two traded away wins in last season’s competition and Morecambe have scored in each of their last eight games against Stanley. In the last six meetings, they have taken two wins each with two drawn matches. Both teams have scored in seven of the last eight meetings as well.

Top Betting Tips

Even though the Shrimps aren’t a huge threat going forward, the trend is there to back them to get something on the scoresheet so both teams to score at 4/6 is a decent option in this one. But Accrington have far superior scoring power that it may be worth backing them to take the win at the Globe Arena.
