Competition: League Two
Market: Port Vale win
Odds: 5/4 @ Bet 365
Hoping to close the buffer on the play-off positions, Port Vale will make the trip to a struggling Morecambe on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, continuing on what has been a very worrying run of form, Morecambe still find themselves at the heart of a relegation scrap. In their 26 League Two matches this season, they have recorded just four wins, seven draws, and 15 defeats, scoring 21 and conceding 45 in return. Along with opening the midweek fixtures in 23rd and sat five points adrift of safety, it should also be noted Morecambe hold the worst defensive record in the division. As for their recent run of results, failing to win any of their last four and losing three of those contests, the hosts have also won just one of their last nine League Two appearances.
As for the visitors, while Port Vale may have been hit with back-to-back Cup defeats last week, they are enjoying a bright run of form in the fourth-tier. In their 26 League Two matches this season, they have recorded nine wins, 11 draws, and six defeats, scoring 33 and conceding 31 in return. With a points tally of 10, they open Tuesday’s contest in 10th and six points adrift of the play-off positions. As for their recent run of results in League Two, Port Vale are unbeaten in their last six fifth-tier matchups and they have also lost just one of their last six on the road.
