Game week 10 of the EFL League will see Morecambe take on Cambridge United this weekend at Mazuma Stadium. Kickoffs schedules for September 24 at 17:00 EAT.
The host is struggling this season where they are currently placed second from the bottom in the table with seven points, three points off the foot of the table. Morecambe now returns to Mazuma Stadium having accrued only two points from four home fixtures to date, so they will be desperate to make amends in front of their own fans.
Morecambe gets into this match coming off 0-0 EFL Trophy draw with Hartlepool United in their previous match. In that game, Morecambe had 62% possession and 11 shots with four of them on target while Hartlepool got 13 shots with two of them on target. Morecambe won the match 4-2 after penalty shootout.
Cambridge United on the other end finished 14th last season, but were among the teams to concede most goals away from home. With just one point gained on the road while leaking goals at a rate of two per game so far in the 2022-23 campaign, they travel to Morecambe in the ninth place with 13 points from nine matches.
Cambridge United comes into this meeting after 0-2 EFL Trophy victory over Northampton Town in their most recent encounter. In that match, Cambridge had 63% possession, 17 shots with eight of them on target and goals scored by Fejiri Okenabirhie (68′, 77′). Northampton Town got five shots with one of them on target.
