“People can say what they want about me. But I’ve got a big heart and will keep going.” - Tyson Fury
Morecambe’s most famous resident. Although reading the quote again, it could quite easily be something Darrell Clarke said.
A wintery Tuesday night in Morecambe, how appealing that doesn’t sound. The good news is that we can’t go and freeze by standing on the terrace there. The bad news is that a lot of us will still watch via iFollow. We can only hope for an improvement.
Players that have played for both are quite limited, maybe some of the older Saddlers on here will know more and can fill us in, but to my knowledge there appears to only be Florent Cuvelier and Tom Brewitt (he played on trial for us the other pre-season).
Morecambe’s last six results are as follows:
12th Dec - Harrogate Town (H) - Won 1-0
15th Dec - Leyton Orient (H) - Won 2-1
19th Dec - Colchester United (A) - Won 2-1
26th Dec - Grimsby Town (H) - Won 3-1
10th Jan - Chelsea (A) (FAC3) - Lost 4-0
16th Jan - Leyton Orient (A) - Lost 2-0
Based on those results, they appear to be very strong at home, and I’d personally suggest we are better away from home, but judging on our recent performances I would make Morecambe favourites for this game (I can’t believe this is where we’ve found ourselves!).
Team selection for this game is likely to be drawn out of a hat again so feel free to let us all know who you would play instead. After Saturday’s encouraging 60 minutes I hope that Jack Nolan keeps his place, however I can see DC rotating him with Tyreik Wright. Who’d be a manager, eh?
Prediction for the game - I can’t see anything other than a draw at best for the Saddlers, but they always manage to surprise you when you least expect it. Fingers crossed.
