Tip Reasoning

  • Seven of Morecambe’s 10 clashes with the top six saw BTTS land
  • Morecambe lost nine of 15 away games to the top 16

Can Morecambe take final step?

Despite having one of the league’s smallest budgets, Morecambe took their push for automatic promotion to the final game of the season. They bounced back from that to make the Play-Off final, but can they take the final step at Wembley?

While they’ve done incredibly well so far, we see Morecambe falling just short of promotion on Monday. They may have finished in form, but a poor record against the better sides in the league marks them out as vulnerable, so we’re siding with Newport in our predictions.

Stockton key for Shrimps

With 13 goals to his name this season, Morecambe will be looking to Cole Stockton to make an impact in this clash. He’s scored six times in his last 10 matches going into this encounter and he’s set to lead the line for the club at Wembley.

Newport haven’t been in stellar defensive form this term and we see Stockton taking advantage of that. While we’re going against the Shrimps, Stockton is well priced to cap off a good season with a goal at the national stadium.

Value lies with goals at Wembley

We have faith that these two will shake any nerves ahead of this game and continue their good form in front of goal. Newport only made it here after a 4-3 loss in extra-time at Forest Green in the semis, while they conceded over a goal per game on the road in the regular season.

However, the Welsh side scored in 91% of their trips this term and they should pack a goal threat here. Newport won five of their eight clashes with the four sides above them (D1 L2) including two wins over Morecambe. Both teams scored in both of those clashes.

Both teams scored in seven of Morecambe’s 10 clashes with the top six and we’re backing more goals in this encounter. Meanwhile, the Shrimps lost five of eight meetings with the top five and they lost nine times in their visits to the top 16 sides in the division, so a 2-1 win for Newport is our correct score prediction.
