Morecambe aim for four straight wins in trip to Cambridge

Morecambe will be looking to build on their run of three straight wins as the Shrimps travel to Cambridge in League One this weekend.

Morecambe moved out of the relegation zone for the first time since the opening weekend of the season last week after victory over Cheltenham Town, to sit 19th in the table, two points outside the bottom four.

In doing so, they overtook Saturday’s opponents, with both Cambridge and the Shrimps sitting on 24 points heading into the contest, but Morecambe with a superior goal difference.

There’s full commentary of the game on Shrimps Live, Saturday afternoon from 2:45pm on our FM and DAB+ services.

Midfielder Dan Crowley became the second new face of the Transfer Window this week, with defender Anthony O’Connor the third player to have his contact cancelled to pursue opportunities elsewhere.

‘’We've taken in two players. One on a permanent basis and one on loan, and we've got scope to get one more on. It's enabled us to change the squad around a bit,’’ said manager, Derek Adams.

‘’We all now the financial constraints we're under at this moment in time, and we're using what budget we have at our disposal.

‘’(Dan) can play anywhere across the front three or a bit deeper. He's a very talented player who has played in the Championship and the top flight in Holland.

‘’He just adds that extra creative edge. We need players who when they get their chance can score goals or create goals. ‘’

The Us had a solid start to the season, but after just one win the last nine games, have slipped down the table. Meanwhile Morecambe, despite their strong form at the Mazuma Stadium, where they are unbeaten in seven matches, have only won once on the road this season in the league, 2-1 at Forest Green Rovers back in September.

‘’We've overtaken a few teams and we're getting closer to others in what I call the 'three eights' in the division,’’ adds Adams.

‘’We've lost a lot of points this season being pulled back from a winning position, but we're getting a stronger squad as the weeks go by.’’
