Recent respective form guides

Morecambe's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Shrimps have scored 7, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Morecambe find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 8 points from their 10 matches. Rochdale's 13 points from 10 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position.
