Over 1.5 Shrewsbury Goals

Our first Shrewsbury vs Morecambe prediction is for the in-form hosts to score at least 2 goals. The Shrews managed to score 2 or more goals in all of their last 4 home matches. Now they face the team with the worst away record in the entire division and will certainly hope for more of the same. The Shrimps are very poor travellers and they conceded 2 or more in 5 of their last 8 away games.

Shrewsbury to Win

Shrewsbury are on an impressive run in the last 11 rounds (W7 D2 L2). They won all of their last 4 home games and despite losing ground on the top 6 positions in midweek they still stand a chance of making the playoffs so the motivation remains high.

Shrewsbury also won 6 of the last H2H clashes and now they face the team with the worst away record in the division. Morecambe have lost 11 of their 17 away matches (W1 D5) and are yet to keep a clean sheet on their travels.

Shrewsbury to Score First

Our final Shrewsbury vs Morecambe prediction is for the hosts to score the first goal of the game. Considering that Morecambe conceded the first goal of the game in all of their last 13 away matches this seems to be one of the surer bets for this game. Not just that, but Shrewsbury scored first in all of their last 5 home outings.

Shrewsbury vs Morecambe Lineups and Team News

Shrewsbury

On Tuesday Shrewsbury conceded a late goal to lose 1-2 on their visit to Peterborough. The Shrews played hard and probably deserved a point but in the end, luck wasn’t with them. This defeat dented seriously the chances to catch the top 6, but a slim hope still remains.

Latest news

Coach Cotterill is not one to rotate much and he’s not expected to make too many changes to the lineup. Still, in search of better forward actions strikers Bowman and Street could be considered for starting roles. Also, if the main playmaker Phillips shows improvement after his recent concussion he could be back. The only absentees are last year’s regulars Nurse (left-back) and Udoh (striker), but the squad is used to playing without them as they have been out since September.

Morecambe

Morecambe were a bit lucky to earn a point on Tuesday night in Cambridge. The Shrimps had to come from behind to eventually save a 1-1 draw against a direct rival for survival. With only 1 win in the last 8 rounds, Morecambe are under serious pressure. They had been very poor on the road all season too.

Latest news

The Morecambe boss Derek Adams is happy to have Duffus as an option again, but after a long spell out he might have to settle for a place on the bench for now. Centre-back Bedeau sat out the midweek match, but now he could replace the unconvincing Simeu in the starting XI. Midfielder Taylor and striker Gnahoua are fitness doubts, but if passed fit both might start too.
