    On Tuesday night, Crewe Alexandra and Morecambe meet at the Alexandra Stadium, as both teams look to move away from League One’s relegation zone.

    Crewe currently occupy the final relegation spot, having taken just five points from their opening seven matches in League One this season.

    However, things may be looking up for Alex. The home team failed to win any of their first five league games of the season, but have now taken four points from their last two league matches. Last time out David Artell’s team won 2-0 at home against Burton Albion to end the winless start to their League One campaign.

    Crewe have a mixed recent league record on home soil, as they have won just two of their last nine League One matches.

    However, they have lost just one of their previous six games on home soil in the league. Their recent League One matches have been low-scoring at the Alexandra Stadium, as five of their last six home games have produced under 2.5 goals.

    Morecambe have taken seven points from as many games in their debut campaign in League One. The Shrimps form has dipped of late, losing four of their last five matches in the third tier. Last time out the visitors suffered a 1-0 defeat at Doncaster Rovers.

    Their most recent league games have been relatively low-scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in four of their last six league outings.

    Morecambe have failed to win in their three away games in the third tier, having suffered two straight defeats on their travels.

    The visitors have failed to win any of the last eight meetings with the home team in all competitions.

    Forebet predicts that Morecambe will end that poor run against their north west rivals by recording a victory in a high-scoring clash.
