Reason For Morecambe VS Colchester Betting Tips

Morecambe secured a potentially crucial victory on Friday as they beat Stevenage 1-0 away from home, ending a nine match winless streak and putting them in an excellent position to survive in League Two.

They currently sit 17th in the table with an eight point cushion on the drop zone, and with just four games remaining, they will feel pretty confident of avoiding slipping into the bottom two.

Their form for the last few months hasn’t exactly been great though, with them losing seven of their last nine games and only winning once. At home they are winless since February, losing four and drawing one of their League Two games since.

Colchester still have a lot to play for in League Two as well. They sit 9th in the table and are one of eight teams all vying to dislodge Carlisle from the last of the League Two playoff spots. The current holders of 7th place are just two points clear of Colchester, so a win on Monday could see them enter the valuable positions.

The visitors managed to take a point from league leaders Doncaster on Friday as well to make it three wins, one draw, and two defeats from their last six outings. Away from home their form hasn’t been as promising though. On the road Colchester have drawn three and lost five of the eight games since their last victory, which came on New Year’s Eve against Stevenage.

Colchester have managed to score in ten of their last 14 on the road though, but have only kept three clean sheets in the process. They’re facing a Morecambe side who have scored in nine of their last 12 at home as well, despite their poor form. This undoubtedly means they are struggling at the other end of the pitch, conceding in 16 of their last 19 on home soil.

This makes odds of 8/11 for Both Teams to Score look excellent value, so I’m backing that alongside a 1-1 correct score predictions at 11/2.

Head To Head

The only previous meeting between these sides was a 2-2 draw back in October.
