Morecambe vs Plymouth Lineups and Team News

Morecambe

Morecambe extended their winless run to 8 after a humiliating 0-5 away defeat vs Barnsley. This was yet another dreadful away display and the Shrimps now need a small miracle if they are to survive.

Latest news

The Morecambe boss Derek Adams can’t hide behind any excuses as he has practically a fully fit squad to pick from with the 2 sidelined players hardly used even when fit anyway. In a bid to seek a win changes to the lineup are likely, particularly in attack. Hunter and Weir could start up front in this one, while Stockton might sit on the bench.

Plymouth

Plymouth suffered a painful Wembley experience last Saturday when losing the Papa John’s Trophy final vs Bolton 0-4. This game exposed well-known defensive weaknesses once more and lately Plymouth’s back line hadn’t been performing well. Argyle remain in the top 2 though and despite some shaky results they continue to chase direct promotion.

Latest news

The team’s main goalie Cooper is out injured. Also, playmaker Randall is a doubt. Those are the only health issues though and Plymouth have plenty of options to refresh their lineup.
