Morecambe prepare for longest trip of League One season

The Shrimps return to League One action tomorrow, making the long trip down to Devon to take on Plymouth Argyle.

It’s a return to Home Park for Shrimps’ boss, Derek Adams, who managed Argyle between 2015 and 2019.

There’s full commentary of the game on Shrimps Live, tomorrow afternoon (Saturday December 17), from 2:45pm, on our FM and DAB+ services.

Last weekend’s clash with Charlton at the Mazuma was postponed due to a frozen pitch, with Derek Adams' side last in action at the beginning of December when they made it four games without loss at home following a 1-1 draw with Exeter City.

Plymouth did play last weekend, a 0-0 draw away at Cambridge United.

The Pilgrims are currently second in the League One table, but have faltered of late, and haven’t won for their last four games.

‘’We knew there was always the possibility that last week’s game (against Charlton Athletic) would be off. The pitch was solid and the right decision was made,’’ said Adams, speaking to the Club’s website ahead of the contest.

‘’Plymouth are a fantastic club. To sit second in the table at the half-way stage, they’ve done ever so well because it’s a difficult division.

‘’I was there for four seasons, and I really enjoyed it. Always going back there is enjoyable for me.

‘’We go there off the back of a draw against Exeter, and we have to be at the top of our game.

‘’Peterborough have lost more games than us, and yet they sit in 6th position, because of their wins. We’ve picked up points in 11 games this season, so that tells you how competitive we’ve been, without being able to get the wins.

‘’In 2017, we (Plymouth) were bottom of the table on 17 points in December, and we finished 7th. That tells you there’s still 26 games to go, a lot of points to play for.

‘’Never judge a team at the half-way point.’’
