Morecambe's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Shrimps have scored 4, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Grimsby Town's away form is none too clever either, unbeaten in their last six, consisting of three wins and three draws. Just 6 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 3 have been let in at the wrong end.
