Oxford United brought an end to a three-game unbeaten streak for Shrewsbury. Matt Taylor’s early goal might have been cancelled by Bowman, but Brannagan’s late penalty proved to be the only decisive goal of the game. Morecambe remain winless in 10 matches after the 3-1 loss against Cheltenham Town. Gregory Leigh came up with the only goal of the game just after half-time and it only turned out to be a consolation.

Morecambe might be winless in 10 consecutive matches, but the team has put some good performances against the likes Ipswich and Bolton in recent weeks. They have been able to pick up points against such opposition. Shrewsbury have been lacking the offensive threat to pick up points and they might once again end up dropping points in the league – as they have done in the last three occasions.

Total goals under 2.5

Shrewsbury have not scored over 1.5 goals in the last three league matches. Apart from scoring twice against Burton, the team has had very little joy. Morecambe have been able to punch well above the weight and expectations, but again goals have eluded the team. It is very likely that this fixture will produce less than 2.5 goals.

Both teams to score – yes

The potential for both teams to score remains high but they have not been able to find the back of the net consistently. Shrewsbury are especially poor on this front, but home advantage should keep them on the boil.
