Notts County continues to look a very strong side so far in League Two this term and they will be looking for some home comforts on the weekend as they face up to Morecambe who are struggling down at the wrong end of the table. Morecambe have not tasted a victory since their opening game of the season and their lack of scoring power is beginning to really make them look vulnerable and this is a tough away game for them. Morecambe are big 4/1 underdogs at Paddy Power in this one, with County 4/6 odds on.
Notts County Form
So it has been very strong stuff from Notts County after a hammering against Coventry which they suffered on the opening day of the season. They have responded to that loss with a W3 D1 record in their last four and they have scored nine goals in those four games. So they have clearly found their feet and on home soil, they have a W1 D1 record and they scored two goals exactly in both of those games. The draw there at home was against the strong Accrington side.
The Shrimps have just the four goals to their name so far, which will be a disappointment for them because they have only conceded five. So their defence isn’t all that bad, but they haven’t been able to take advantage of things going forward. They battled well enough last weekend in a loss against Accrington and they have drawn their two away games so far. They would be happy enough with a point out of this tough game, and they will be fully relying on their defence to get them there.
Head to Head News
Morecambe took an away win at Meadow Lane last season and doubled up with a home win over County as well. They are unbeaten in their last four League Two fixtures against the Magpies now so that is in their favour. Each of the last six meetings have seen over 2.5 goals in them, so that’s not a bad little trend to look for going into this one.
Top Betting Tips
It has just been a disappointing return up front from Morecambe this season which is really hindering them. Notts County have had no such troubles about putting the ball in the back of the net and they look value on home soil to roll off a victory and it’s worth backing them to do so in a game that goes over 2.5 goals as well.
