Cambridge or Draw

Our first Cambridge vs Morecambe prediction is a pretty safe one. We think the hosts will be able to avoid defeat in this important match. Morecambe have lost all of their last 6 away games. The Shrimps have an awful away record in general – (W1 D4 L11). On top of that they have earned just 1 point from their last 7 H2H clashes against Cambridge.

Cambridge to Score First

Cambridge scored first in 4 of their last 5 matches against Morecambe and with our second Cambridge vs Morecambe prediction we suggest this will happen again. To back up further this tip we think Morecambe will extend their awful away run. In all of their last 13 away matches the Shrimps conceded the first goal of the game.

Under 2.5 Goals

Both teams are in trouble exactly because they don’t score enough goals. With that in mind, we think there will be fewer than 3 total goals when the sides meet. All of Morecambe’s last 4 games had gone under 2.5 goals. The Shrimps failed to even score in their last 5 away matches. Cambridge have been involved in loads of low-scoring games too, 7 of their last 8 league matches produced fewer than 3 goals.

Cambridge vs Morecambe Lineups and Team News

Cambridge

Cambridge lost 0-1 at home against Portsmouth on Saturday after what was yet another dismal attacking display. With only 1 win from the last 12 rounds Cambridge are in desperate mode from now on and they have to start treating every remaining match as a cup final. The squad remains badly crippled and weakened in every part of the pitch with 7 field players currently nursing injuries. Among them the important Dunk (starting centre-back), May (key playmaker) and Kribbs (main striker). Coach Bonner has used an unchanged starting XI in all of the last 5 rounds. He might opt for the same lineup again.

Latest news

Cambridge United gaffer Mark Bonner has almost a full squad to choose from, with just one player ruled out due to fitness concerns. Sadly, January signing George Thomas won’t be available for the remainder of the season due to an ankle injury. However, Steve Seddon could make it to the starting XI after coming off the bench in their last game against Portsmouth. Strikers Joe Ironside and Sam Smith, who have each netted six times this season, will be the ones to watch out for as they form a formidable front two for the hosts.

Morecambe

Morecambe did well to hold off the promotion-chasing Bolton team at home Saturday. The game ended in a 0-0 draw, with the Shrimps good value for the point after showing some stoic defending in this match. Going forward things were not that good yet again though. Morecambe enter the match practically at full strength and with plenty of options to refresh the lineup if they choose to do so. The only player out injured is the rarely-used anyway striker Mellon.

Latest news

The Morecambe boss Derek Adams is pleased to have a full squad at his disposal with no injury concerns ahead of the match. On the other hand, the visitors will likely miss Michael Mellon again due to his ongoing injury problem. However, 17-year-old Adam Mayor could make a comeback to the starting lineup after being dropped for their previous game, which ended in a goalless draw. It remains to be seen whether the youngster can make an impact in the midweek fixture.
