Morecambe vs Colchester Prediction

Morecambe have been on the road for the past two weeks, and have failed to garner even a single point in each. Their most recent clash saw them lose to Bradford City after Aramide Otah scored the only goal of the game.

It is also worth mentioning that the hosts have just four measly wins under their belt so far. On the other hand, Colchester have been in their stride for quite some time now. Impressively, the visitors have not been at the losing end in any of their last ten games in the fourth division.

Furthermore, the guests have been a force to reckon with on the road too. They have stumbled just twice in their previous ten outings in all competitions.

In sharp contrast, Morecambe have miserably dropped points in ten of their last twelve matchups here. To make matters worse, the hosts are yet to secure the bragging rights against a side that is dwelling in the top half of the table.

Taking into account that they have not picked up a win against this foe in any of their previous meetings here either, the Morecambe faithful are left with no reason to have their hopes up in this one.

Additionally, the hosts have been consistent in scoring a goal or more in each of their past four games at home. Also, more than half of the twenty goals that they have netted this season have come from their clashes at Globe Arena.

Meanwhile, Colchester have been found napping at the back far too many times on the road. They have kept a clean sheet just twice in their past eight games in the fourth division.

Hence, count on both teams to have their names on the scoresheet this weekend.
