Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Southend will be looking to make amends for back-to-back losses to the likes of Harrogate and Southend when they host Morecambe at their Roots Hall. The Shrimpers do not seem to be competitive at this level, and it should come as no surprise the odds for away win have been dropping rapidly. Southend United suffered elimination in both EFL Cup and EFL Trophy as well, and you should know that they are on a four-game losing run in all competitions ahead of Matchday 3.
Morecambe, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-0 loss to Cambridge United. The visitors are eager to get back on course, and seeing that they defeated Cheltenham in their first away game of the season, we are tempted to put our money on Ron Martin’s troops. Ireland international Liam McAlinden is widely expected to lead the line for the visitors.
