The hosts were three goals up by half-time, with goals from Cole Stockton, Arthur Gnahoua, and Rhys Oates. Colchester pulled a goal back through Tom Eastman early in the second half, but Morecambe held on for a comfortable victory.

          The two clubs did not meet again for over 20 years, until they were both promoted to League Two in the 2020/21 season. Sutton United won the first meeting of the two clubs in League Two, with a 2-1 victory at Gander Green Lane. However, Morecambe got their revenge in the reverse fixture, with a 3-1 win at Christie Park.

          In the 2021/22 season, the two clubs drew both of their fixtures against each other, 1-1 at Gander Green Lane and 2-2 at Christie Park.The rivalry between Sutton United and Morecambe has intensified in recent years, as the two clubs have been competing for promotion to League One.

          Adams has a number of selection dilemmas ahead of the match. Key players such as Cole Stockton, Arthur Gnahoua, and Rhys Oates are all pushing for starts, but Adams may be tempted to rotate his squad given the busy schedule. One player who is definitely out is defender James Connolly. Connolly is serving a one-match suspension after being sent off in Morecambe's last match against Colchester United.
