Morecambe to Win

Morecambe managed to win their last home games against Port Vale (1-0 and 2-1). Also, on all their struggles the Shrimps continue to play well at home where they have lost just 1 of their last 10 games (W5 D4). To add to that Port Vale lost 4 of their last 6 away league games, with their only win in these 6 against bottom-dwellers Forest Green. All this makes us pick as our first Morecambe vs Port Vale prediction Morecambe to win.

Over 1.5 Morecambe Goals

Our next Morecambe vs Port Vale prediction is that the Shrimps will be able to score at least 2 goals. They did that in 4 of their last 6 home games. At the same time, Port Vale’s defending had been awful lately. The Valiants conceded over 1.5 goals in 5 of the last 8 rounds.

Result After 30 mins: Draw

The safest Morecambe vs Port Vale prediction in our view is that after 30 minutes the game will be locked in a draw. There is a lot at stake for both teams, they both fight for survival, so a cautious start can be expected.

The main reason to pick this betting option though is that both sides are known for being very slow starters. Morecambe have scored just 4 goals inside the opening 30 minutes all season. Port Vale are even poorer in that department with just 3 goals scored before the half-hour mark.

Morecambe vs Port Vale preview: Form and Team News

Morecambe

Morecambe lost 0-3 at home against Peterborough on Saturday. With this, the Shrimps sank further into trouble. They now have just 1 point from their last 4 league games.

The health of the squad is very good though and from the 4 players currently nursing injuries midfielder Watts is the only important squad member. What this means is that Morecambe have options to refresh their lien-up if they wish to do so.

Despite their recent results, the Mazuma Stadium has been a positive place to be. Morecambe have only tasted defeat once in front of their home fans in ten fixtures. Moreover, prior to their defeat to Petersborough and draw with Forest Green, they had registered four successive victories at home. They can get out of the relegation slots with a win but it will not be an easy task given their poor defensive showings, conceding 13 goals in their last five matches.

Port Vale

On Saturday Port Vale stopped a 7-game winless run with a scrappy 1-0 home success over Exeter. The display was far from vintage but in the end, all that mattered was the win.

The Valiants are having selection problems in attack for the coming match. Star striker Wilson is certainly missing injured. Also the 2 main wingers Odubeko and Butterworth are considered doubtful. At least top scorer Harrison (8 goals) is fit and available.

Port Vale fans will be concerned with their away trip as they have only scored five goals and shipped in ten goals in return. The clean sheet against Exeter would have improved their confidence in their ranks, one that should allow them to rekindle their promotion hopes. Out of the top fourteen teams in the table, they have the worst defensive record and their attacking output is only better than Lincoln City amongst the teams under consideration.
