Also, all of Morecambe’s last 7 games against a top 6 opponents had at least 3 goals in them.

Barnsley vs Morecambe Lineups and Other News

Barnsley

Barnsley saw their impressive 12-game unbeaten run (W10 D2) come to a surprising end on Tuesday when losing 1-3 away vs Exeter. This was an uncharacteristic display from the Tykes filled with lots of individual errors that were nowhere to be seen in the previous 12 rounds. Despite this defeat they remain just behind the top 2 so still in the race for direct promotion.

Have a big squad and can refresh the lineup if they decide to. Russel and Jalo are back from international duties and both can play. Still missing 5 players due to injuries, but none of them regular starters even when available so the squad is pretty much at full strength.

Morecambe

Morecambe suffered yet another away defeat last weekend and they have been able to win just once in the last 12 rounds. Sitting in the relegation zone the Shrimps are under serious pressure right now. Also, reports that players’ salaries had been delayed suggest that the motivation of the group is questionable.

Morecambe have no serious injury issues with all of the regulars fit and available. How motivated they will be with their wages for February and March not paid yet is another question.
