An alternative game.

The enigma..... They are under change with the arrival of Derek Adams.

We need a strong back 4 for this one.  I expect lots of long-balls from them planted into the area around our corner flag.

But, then, what do I know? 

Our quality in front of goal will slice them to the core.

7-1 to us!

We are Curley-Cobblers, and we will win!

We have a decent record against these.
Played 15
Won 7
Draw 6
Lose 2

Therefore I have a very good feeling...

3-1 Cobbs Willo, Olly and The Hoskmeister

Yes they won tonight and they have awful away record..

I think we will need at least 2 goals as Kevin Ellison always scores against us !

He hasn’t been in their squad for the last few games, don’t know if he’s injured? Watching their highlights over the weekend they’re a team of giants so it’s likely to be another game where defending and attacking set pieces are crucial.

We should have won the game up there...threw away a 2 goal lead. We also lost there last season when they hadn't won for ages. So a bit of a bogey side for us away....

They did beat Port Vale 2-0 at home last night, so that will give them confidence, as well as having tired them out a bit!

Lets be honest, we should be winning games like this, but we often struggle against the lower teams.

Morecambe have picked up 4 points from their home games against Colchester and Port Vale but have only scored 8 away goals in 13 matches while conceding 26. They have the worst defensive record in the division and only Stevenage have scored fewer goals. I believe we will prove too strong for them and send Derek Adams home defeated, although he will claim they were the better team and deserved to win.
Expect a cracking atmosphere as a travelling army of about 80 rock the south stand to it's rafters. If it turns out to be a choice of Stevenage or Morecambe who go down I hope it is Morecambe as Stevenage is a local game and they are slightly better supported.

It's not going to be an easy game, I have a feeling it is going to be very physical.

It's actually better than that,
Played 17
Won 9
Drawn 6
Lost 2
For 31
Against 19

And broken down home and away,

Home
P 8
W 4
D 3
L 1
F 14
A 8

Away
P 9
W 5
D 3
L 1
F 17
A 11

Not sure how that makes them a bogey side away!  Huh?

A small bogey which has only developed over the past two games!   Wink

Definitely not injured - he's a good follow on Twitter. Posted something about not getting in the match day squad last weekend. They only had 6 on the bench!

A tad less confidence...it finished 2-1!

Hopefully Morecambe have got their win out of the way now and we can get the 3 points. It won't be easy. I'm sure they will come and defend in numbers. If we can get an earlyish goal then there's no reason why we can't go on and get 3, 4 or 5.

Lowest away following of the season I'd guess. 100 maybe.

Our current track record against Derek Adam sides is good, long may it continue, he is a bit of a whinger in the Dave Artell mould.

I reckon Morecambe will score first and then we’ll score 3. The 3-1 score is definitely correct, although the goals are not necessarily in the right order?

This will be something like a 2-0 win. Bit frustrating at times but comfortable in the end.

Ideally we get an early goal and force them to come at us.

Surely, getting a goal and forcing them to sit back would be preferable?  Grin

These are exactly the games Curle’s sides struggle in .
It won’t be going down in my list at corals today as a certain home win .
I hope we try and open them up rather than bombard them . It should be a game Lines takes control of or even Warburton if he came on 😏
