Morecambe vs Bradford City Predictions
Morecambe have consistently struggled towards the lower reaches of the League Two table in the last few seasons but consistently defy the odds to remain in the EFL. This time around due to the situation that has occurred with League One Bury, only one team will be relegated from the basement division but admittedly it looks like it’s going to be between the Shrimps, Stevenage and Scunthorpe if the first quarter of the campaign is anything to go by.
The Lancashire outfit come into this game on the back of an 11 game winless streak in all competitions stretching back to August and confidence seems to be low among Jim Bentley’s squad. They have experience in this situation from the last few years so you wouldn’t be surprised to see them pull away from the bottom of the table, but they need to start picking up points beginning with three here at 29/10 with Ladbrokes.
Bradford City were among the favourites to win promotion from League Two this season. Given the quality in their squad, it came as a real shock when the West Yorkshire outfit failed to remain in the third tier last season but a lack of continuity and togetherness in the squad saw them finish bottom, but new boss Gary Bowyer is now slowly but surely starting to gel a strong squad together.
With just one defeat in their last six league matches, the Bantams have lifted themselves into the play-off positions of late with some strong performances. After the changes that occured both in the dugout and in the squad over the summer it was bound to take some time for the side to find their feet but now that they have, promotion seems a very realistic aim – as do three points in this trip to the coast at odds of 19/20 with Bet365.
Although the away win seems a given here looking at recent form of both sides, we do expect goals at both ends. The Shrimps have actually found the net at least once in their last four games, despite winning none of them, while Bradford have actually failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last five games. The superior quality of this Bantams outfit will win out but we’re backing them on the match result and both teams to score market at 14/5 with Coral.
Shay McCartan opened his account for the season last weekend as Bradford earned a 2-1 home win over Swindon Town at Valley Parade. The former Accrington Stanley man will be hoping for a chance to shine again in this game as none of the Bantams forwards have been particularly prolific so far in this campaign. We’re backing the Northern Irishman to get on the scoresheet again here at 11/4 with Paddy Power.
