Tranmere vs Morecambe Predictions


Tranmere are low on confidence after a terrible run of form, which led to the sacking of former manager Keith Hill at the end of the season. Morecambe finished their season as the most in-form team in League Two.

I am backing a Morecambe to continue their good form in the playoffs with a win to nil. 

  • Tranmere have failed to score in 2 of their last 3 home matches (League Two)
  • Morecambe have won to nil in 3 of their last 4 matches (League Two)
  • Morecambe have won 5 of their last 6 matches (League Two)

Head-to-Head


Tranmere have a 5-2 advantage against Morecambe in eight meetings with one draw.

Morecambe beat Tranmere 1-0 at Prenton Park earlier in the season. 

Tranmere Form 


Tranmere edged into the League Two playoffs following a disappointing 0-0 home draw against Colchester.

Tranmere failed to create any good chances with five shots and just one on target. Rovers had 54% possession but failed to use it to good effect.

Consistent poor performances late in the season led to Keith Hill's sacking. The coach took over in November and guided Tranmere from 13th in League Two to seventh. 

Back-to-back 1-0 wins against Bradford and Barrow were Tranmere’s only positive results late in the season. The Wirral side were winless in nine of their last 11 matches in League Two and failed to score in three of their last five. 

Tranmere Injuries & Team News


Tranmere have no injuries or suspensions. 

Morecambe Form


Morecambe finished their season in fine form and took 15 points from their last 18 available in League Two, missing out on automatic promotion by one point.

Derek Adams’ side capped an impressive run in with consecutive 2-0 wins over Walsall away and Bradford at home.

The Shrimps had 28% possession but created good chances on the counter-attack. Liam McAlinden hit the bar early on then scored on 29 minutes before Cole Stockton added a second just after halftime. 

Morecambe have been around the playoff places all season due to a consistent campaign. They were unfortunate to miss out on a top-three place after an excellent spell at the end of the season, winning seven of their last 11 matches. 

Morecambe Injuries & Team News


Striker Jordan Slew is ruled out with a toe fracture.

Winger John O’Sullivan is also unavailable due to injury.

Verdict

Tranmere’s form has been unconvincing after some listless performances late in the season.

Morecambe are in top form, hard to beat and dangerous on the counter-attack. I am tipping a Morecambe win to nil.
