        Morecambe vs Wrexham Preview, Tips & Stats

        Globe Arena hosts Morecambe and Wrexham this Saturday in League Two. Wrexham look to make the leap into the automatic promotion spots whereas Morecambe aim to close in on the Play-offs.

        Morecambe currently sit eighth in League Two after 36 games. The Shrimps have 15 wins, nine draws and 11 losses, leaving them on 54 points, just two points from Play-off football.

        In their last five games in all competitions, Morecambe have two wins, two draws and one loss.

        After a goalless first half, Omar Bugiel opened the scoring for Wimbledon early in the second half. Despite having just one shot on target, Chris Stokes managed to convert it to grab a 1 - 1 draw for Morecambe. However, the next time out against Walsall saw Morecambe unable to register a single shot on target. Ross Tierney, Jamille Matt and Emmanuel Adegboyega all scored to give Walsall the 3 - 0 win.

        An early goal from Danny Rose gave Grimsby Town the 1 - 0 lead in the second minute. Jordan Slew equalised for Morecambe early in the second half, but neither team could find the back of the net again as the game finished in a 1 - 1 draw. Goals from Elliott Nevitt and Shilow Tracey gave Crewe Alexandra the 2 - 0 lead early in the second half, but a busy last 20 minutes saw Joe Adams, Slew and Farrend Rawson all score to give Morecambe the 3 - 2 win.

        The last time out for Morecambe was against Crawley Town. Slew was on the scoresheet again for Morecambe with the only goal of the game, giving The Shrimps the 1 - 0 win.

        Wrexham sit just above Morecambe in third in League Two. In 35 games, Wrexham have 18 wins, nine draws and eight losses which leaves them on 63 points, equal with second-place Stockport and three points from top of the league Mansfield Town.

        In their last five games in all competitions, Wrexham have two wins, two draws and one loss.

        Steven Fletcher scored the only goal of the game in the 20th minute to give Wrexham the 1 - 0 win over Notts County, despite having only 26% of the possession. Both goals in the clash against MK Dons came in one four minute period. James McClean opened the scoring for Wrexham but Dan Kemp equalised almost immediately. However, in the second half, both teams saw a player sent off. Dean Lewington was sent off for MK Dons and 15 minutes later, William Boyle was sent off for Wrexham as the game finished a 1 - 1 draw.

        Timothee Dieng grabbed the only goal of the game in the 54th minute to give Gillingham the 1 - 0 win over a Wrexham side who only managed three shots on target. Wrexham went behind early against Forest Green Rovers, with Emmanuel Osadebe giving Rovers the lead in the third minute. However, a penalty from Paul Mullin in the 93rd minute to rescue a 1 -1 draw for Wrexham.

        The most recent outing for Wrexham was against Accrington Stanley. A hat-trick from Mullin and a goal from Elliot Lee gave Wrexham the 4 - 0 win over a ten-man Accrington, who had Lewis Shipley sent off late on.

        Morecambe and Wrexham have only met four times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 2003. Wrexham have the better record with three wins, with Morecambe yet to win and the other game ending in a draw.
