Preston to Win

This is the eighth instalment of a Morecambe and Preston fixture in the current millennia. The Lilywhites lost the first exchange but have been on a tear against their rivals, winning seven matches in succession. Frankie McAvoy’s men are separated by two divisions from their rivals and should continue the historical trends on their trip to the Globe Arena.

Over 2.5 Goals

Morecambe has seen three of their last five competitive fixtures finish with at least three goals on the scoreboard. A similar tally of scorers has been posted by Preston North End across this period. However, their most recent two outings against Petersborough and Huddersfield finished with 1-0 scorelines. Nevertheless, with all but one of their eight H2H fixtures with an Over 2.5 goals scoreline, we expect goals in this EFL Cup meeting.

Both Teams to Score: Yes

After witnessing Morecambe score six goals in their opening three fixtures, Stephen Robinson’s men have stuttered on the offensive with only one goal in their next two outings. Preston’s struggles in the final third remain high as they have only scored six goals and conceded seven from their five competitive outings. With both Morecambe and Preston scoring regularly and allowing free reign for their rivals in their final third, goals should be expected on either end of the pitch as they come together.

Morecambe vs Preston Fixture Preview

Morecambe FC

Stephen Robinson seemed bereft of ideas as Morecambe succumbed to their second successive defeat in League One. The Shrimps faithful will expect better showing from their squad as they focus their attention towards the EFL Cup. They have not succeeded against Preston in fourteen years and can enter the history books if they end their jinx against them.

Preston North End

While Morecambe has struggled in league action, Frankie McAvoy will be pleased with how Preston North End are faring two divisions up. The Lilywhites secured a 1-0 win over Petersborough but McAvoy would have surely wanted more from his charges. Preston dominated the play after creating 16 goalscoring but could only return to Deepdale with a solitary strike from Patrick Bauer
