Morecambe have defied the odds somehow this season as they were expected to have already be relegated by this stage of the season by many watchers. The situation as bad as first thought for them at the moment, but they still have work to do to get to where they would love to be.
With Colchester not in their best shape at the moment, Morecambe have the chance to help themselves become more stable on the league table. However, they have collected just 22 points at home this season and they would have to do better than some of their previous home matches to get the better of their visitors.
Colchester’s hopes of winning a spot at the end of season’s playoff seems to be off now as they head into this game without a win in 4 attempts. They also netted just once in that run of 4 games, however, they have lost to nil in only 17% of their away matches this season and they could get back to form in this game. Their last 3 head to head clashes have ended in stalemates, with the last match ending in a 0-0 draw.
