Tip Reasoning

  • Sunderland have lost just one home league game this season (W7, D1).
  • Morecambe failed to win seven of their nine away league games (D1, L6).
  • Sunderland won without reply in both prior H2H matches.

Black Cats to make light work of the Shrimps

The pressure is on Sunderland manager Lee Johnson even though his side sit just two points off the top of the table, which culminated in small sections of the home support turning on their manager after a draw against Oxford over the weekend, such is the pressure at this club.

If anything, the intensity of support in the North East will only put fire in the bellies of the players to do better this time around. Notably, Sunderland sit just two points off the top of the table and have conceded a league-low five home goals this term.

As such, the Black Cats shouldn’t let their heads drop here against a relegation-threatened Morecambe. While Sunderland’s recent home form does not make for good reading (W1, D2, L3), they have played a slew of cup games – their main focus now turns back to matters of promotion.

Morecambe to slip further into trouble

Ahead of this round, Morecambe sit just two points above the drop-zone, albeit with a game in hand. The visitors ground out a 1-0 win against tier eight opponents, Buxton, in the FA Cup last time out, which in itself is a sign of struggle for the visitors.

In league action, Morecambe have won just once since the end of September and that looks set to continue here against one of the strongest sides in this division.

All in all, a home win at short odds looks to be the best bet, rolling this prediction up in an accumulator could be the way to go. After Morecambe conceded 14 goals across their last five away league games, I predict a reasonably straightforward 2-0 home victory.
