Pompey trail the top 6 by 5 points with only 6 rounds left so they are running out of time to make the playoffs.

With our next Portsmouth vs Morecambe prediction we venture into the Goals Market. We think there will be at least 1 goal scored in the first half of the game. With 55% of Morecambe’s away matches having more goals in the first half this seems a very likely scenario. There was a first-half goal in all of Morecambe’s last 7 away games anyway.

Bishop to Score Anytime

Our final Portsmouth vs Morecambe prediction explores the Goalscoring Market. We back Pompey’s top scorer Bishop (19 goals) to find the back of the net again. He has scored 7 goals in just the last 10 rounds. Also, Bishop has scored in 56% of Portsmouth’s home matches from November onward. Now he is up against a defence that has failed to keep a clean sheet on the road all season.

Portsmouth vs Morecambe Lineups and Team News

Portsmouth

Portsmouth dropped precious points last weekend when drawing 1-1 away vs MK Dons. It started well for Portsmouth but Morrell’s red card late in the first half complicated things and led to the draw.

The key playmaker Morrell now misses suspended. Also, his teammates had to work extra hard on Good Friday and fatigue could prove to be an issue for them now. At least of the 4 injured players centre-back Swanson is the only important one.

Morecambe

Morecambe lost 1-3 at home against leaders Plymouth on Good Friday. Once again outplayed in the later stages with the Shrimps low on morale after going winless in 9 and pretty much giving up the hope that they could survive.

Morecambe have a big squad to pick from so some rotation can be expected. There are no major injury issues in the squad either with all of the 3 doubtful players with a chance to recover on time. If centre-back Bedeau and the key playmaker Shaw are passed fit they should start too.
