Team News: Morecambe
There is just the lone fitness concern for the Morecambe manager Stephen Robinson to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength group. Shayon Harrison (Ankle Injury) misses out.
Team News: Lincoln City
Owing to a completely healthy group available to choose from, the Lincoln City manager Michael Appleton doesn’t have any fitness worries to speak of ahead of this match.
Our feeling is that Morecambe will need things to go their way to breach the defence of this Lincoln City lineup who we think will just have the edge.
We’re therefore anticipating a good tussle with a 0-1 winning margin for Lincoln City when the referee blows for full-time.
It should be a good one.
