Coventry vs Morecambe
Last round in England League Two and a match between Coventry and Morecambe.
I will be short here- BOTH teams need a point for different purposes. Coventry are in the play-off zone and a point will be enough for them to stay there, because they have 3 points advantage of Mansfield which are out of this zone. Morecambe are struggling to survive in the league. They have two points advantage of Barnet, which team is in the relegation zone and a draw here will be enough to have three points advantage and almost for sure survival. In this league first is the number of points, then the goal difference, then goals scored and after that direct matches, so Morecambe are with -15 goal difference, while Barnet(relegation zone) is with -22. Must happen a miracle Barnet to beat Chesterfield with 7 goal difference in the last round to save themselves if Coventry and Morecambe make a draw.
Coventry is not of the teams which makes a lot of draws, especially at home, but I think they are almost obliged to do it now. They lost their visit to Morecambe in the first part of the season 2:0, so I'm not sure they can easily win the match if both teams put up a real fight for the max amount of points here. Loss for any of the teams can be crucial- Coventry can easily miss the play-offs with a loss, while the chances Morecambe to be relegated will be more than 90% if they lose today.
I don't think in this kind of game with such an importance for both clubs I have to speak about missing players, but will mention them. Jodi Jones and Tony Andreu are out for Coventry, while Dean Winnard is out for the guests. If the match looks decided before its start I don't think it's so important to look starting line-ups, absentees..It's lower league in England and fixed matches are absolutely possible. Maybe most of you remember how two weeks ago Yeovil and Forrest Green both needed a point for their survivals in the same league and they made boring 0:0 without a lot of chances in the match and they got what they wanted. I think the same will happen today- 0:0, 1:1 are the most expected results here!
