Thanks to a largely available group, there is just the sole fitness issue for the Morecambe gaffer Derek Adams to contend with. Jordan Slew (Fibula Fracture) misses out for this game. Yann Songo'o is ineligible for this match because of suspension.
We think that Morecambe will need to push hard to see themselves scoring against this Cambridge United side who will likely end up scoring and possibly keep a clean sheet as well.
We’re therefore seeing a very competitive game with a 1-0 win for Cambridge United when the referee blows for full-time.
