Competition: League Two

Market: Morecambe win

Odds: 10/11 @ 888sport

Glad to make a return to Lancashire in midweek, Morecambe will welcome relegation scrappers Southend to The Globe Arena on Tuesday evening.

Starting with the hosts, after watching league leaders Cambridge land a 2-1 win over the weekend, there is no doubt that Morecambe will be glad to make a return to home soil in midweek. Still sat in the play-off spots and within striking distance of skyrocketing their way into the top-three, The Shrimps have gained a reputation for their continued success at The Globe Arena. Last seen in Lancashire picking up a very impressive 1-0 win against a high-flying Cheltenham, The Reds have collected 12 points from their last five matchups on home soil. With that run highlighted by a string of 3-1 victories against Salford, Crawley and Carlisle, it should also be noted that Morecambe hold the fourth-best record at home this campaign. Smelling a real chance on Tuesday evening, the hosts certainly appear at eye-catching odds.

As for the visitors, while Morecambe might have their sights set on real promotion charge this year, the same cannot be said for a struggling Southend. In a battle to keep hold of their Football League status, The Blues open the midweek fixtures still sat five points adrift of safety with time ticking away. Last seen over the weekend getting hit with a deserved 2-0 defeat against Carlisle on home soil, the Essex-based outfit failed to build off of that much-needed victory against Harrotage when drawing a close to March. With just a single win to their name in any of their last nine contests, it should also be noted that Southend hold a dreadful record against Tuesday’s hosts. Suffering a 2-1 defeat when they welcomed Morecambe to Roots Hall in the reverse fixture, The Blues have lost each of their last four straight meetings against the promotion contenders.
