  • Morecambe have seen BTTS in 7 of their last 8 matches against Newport (League Two)

Head-to-Head


Morecambe have a 7-5 advantage against Newport in 16 meetings with four draws.

Morecambe Form 


Morecambe beat Tranmere 3-2 on aggregate in the playoff semi-final. The Shrimps won 2-1 in the first leg and secured their place in the final with a 1-1 draw in the second leg. 

Derek Adams’ side took the lead early on before Tranmere equalised early in the second half. Morecambe were happy to concede 66% possession and created good chances on the counter with 13 shots. 

The result extended Morecambe’s unbeaten run to four matches in League One. The Shrimps beat Walsall and Bradford 2-0 in the regular season and missed out on automatic promotion by one point. 

Morecambe Injuries & Team News


Defender Stephen Hendrie and midfielder Brad Lyons are both unavailable after sustaining injuries against Tranmere.  

Striker Jordan Slew and winger John O’Sullivan are ruled out through injury. 

Newport Form


Newport edged into the League Two playoff final following a 5-4 aggregate win against Forest Green. 

The Welsh side had a 2-0 advantage heading into the second leg but lost 4-3 after extra time at the New Lawn Stadium. 

Newport conceded three goals early on before Kevin Ellison and Joss Labadie scored in the last 20 minutes to restore their aggregate lead.

A late Forest Green goal sent the tie to extra time and Nicky Maynard scored in the 119th minute to send County to Wembley. 

The result extended a patchy run of form for County. Michael Flynn’s side have won four matches in their last 10, all home wins. 

They have been hard to beat in the latter stages of the season, losing just two of their last 11. 

Newport Injuries & Team News


Newport have no injuries or suspensions ahead of the playoff final.
