Plymouth Argyle vs Morecambe Tips and Prediction

Plymouth Argyle had a standout start to the League One campaign, laying the groundwork for their promotion quest as they sat atop the table with 41 points from 17 games.

Steven Schumacher’s team recorded 13 victories during that time, but after failing to add to their win total in four subsequent tries, they were unable to maintain their position atop the leaderboard.

Following losses to Grimsby Town in the FA Cup first round, draws with Lincoln City and Burton Albion, and a 5-1 drubbing, Plymouth would only suffer its third league loss of the year at home to Port Vale at the beginning of December. James Wilson scored twice in the second half to lead Port Vale to a 2-0 victory.

Last weekend, the Pilgrims traveled to face Cambridge United in an attempt to halt their recent slump. However, neither team was able to break the score, and Schumacher’s team was only able to return home with a point.

Plymouth has now dropped to second place and only leads the third-place Owls by two points, so they will be desperate to get back to winning ways and increase their cushion in the automatic promotion spots once more. While they were given a pass because Sheffield Wednesday also drew, they will now be desperate to get back to winning ways.

As the visitors attempt to rise from the bottom of the table and strengthen their position in the struggle for survival, they encounter a Morecambe side that is in need of a victory for many reasons.

Contrary to their opponents on Saturday, the Shrimps’ first 20 league games have resulted in just two triumphs, with their previous three-point haul occurring in October.

Derek Adams’ team has added four points to their total since an improbable victory against Barnsley thanks to some admirable draws with Wycombe, Portsmouth, and Derby County, but they remain at the bottom as their quest for another victory continues.

Adams’s team would lose their ninth league game of the season away at Lincoln City after three consecutive third-tier draws, as well as losses in the FA Cup and EFL Cup. Jensen Weir’s 81st-minute goal was insufficient to spark a comeback after they fell behind 2-0.

The Shrimps are currently level on points with 23rd-placed MK Dons and six points adrift of safety after a draw with Exeter City last Friday, in which Cole Stockton’s first-half opener was immediately cancelled out by Josh Key. They will be eager to end their winless streak and improve their position in the battle for survival with what would be a statement victory at Home Park.


Despite the fact that Plymouth is not at its best and the visitors have recently displayed some resiliency, the Pilgrims will still view Saturday as an excellent opportunity to resume winning ways, and they should be able to outperform Morecambe and secure all three points.
