Match Previews

Shrimps set for visit of the Bluebirds

31 March 2024

Easter Monday sees Barrow AFC join us at the Mazuma Mobile Stadium, as we look to make it two wins on the bounce.

The Shrimps will be hoping to make it two derby wins in two fixtures as they host Morecambe Bay neighbours Barrow AFC on Monday 1 April.

The match takes place three days after Morecambe made the short trip to the Wham Stadium to face Accrington Stanley on Good Friday. A first EFL goal for midfielder Nelson Khumbeni and a Charlie Brown free-kick saw the Shrimps come out 2-1 winners on the day, Ged Brannan claiming all three points on the return to his former club.

In their Good Friday fixture, Barrow hosted Grimsby Town at Holker Street. Ex-Shrimp Cole Stockton scored a brace, with Robbie Gotts adding a third for the Bluebirds in the 82nd minute. Justin Obikwu got one back for the visitors in the 89th minute, but his goal proved nothing more than a consolation, the scoreline finishing 3-1 to the hosts.

Monday's two sides last faced each other on Halloween, under the lights at Holker Street. On this evening, a Dom Telford strike saw all three points stay in Barrow - 1-0 the final score. 

The Opposition

The Bluebirds have had a strong campaign in League Two this season, 18 wins and 13 draws seeing the side on 67 points. This places Pete Wild's side in fifth, firmly in the play-off spots and still in the fight for the automatic promotion spots.


Wild has been at the helm at Holker Street since the May of 2022, after spending a spell at Halifax Town.

Key Players

Midfielder Ben Whitfield tops the scoring charts for the Bluebirds, netting 10 goals in his 33 appearances this season. Whitfield made the move to Holker Street in the summer of 2022, having spent a season at Stockport County.


Another important asset in Barrow's campaign since his January arrival is striker Cole Stockton. The forward has scored seven goals in his 12 appearances and will no doubt be looking to cause problems on his return to the Mazuma Mobile Stadium. Stockton made over 200 appearances for the Shrimps over two spells, scoring 70 goals in the process.

The Man in the Middle

Marc Edwards will take charge at the Mazuma Mobile Stadium on Monday afternoon, the referee officiating his 24th fixture of the season. In his previous 23, Edwards has dished out 100 cards, 99 of them yellows.

Shrimps' fans may remember the referee from Morecambe's trip to Milton Keynes in January; a late Charlie Brown strike completing a memorable 2-1 comeback for Ged Brannan's side on this afternoon.

Richard Woodward and Karl Buckley will run the line, with fourth official Paul Newhouse completing the team of officials. 

Ged Brannan’s Pre-Match Thoughts

Morecambe manager Ged Brannan spoke ahead of a tough Easter Monday challenge.

"Barrow are flying this year," he said. "They've had a fantastic season no matter what, so we know it's going to be a tough game.

"There's going to be a big crowd, it's going to be very noisy. We're going to have to go out there and try and get the three points to keep us in the mix.

"We'll go into the game full of confidence and try and play our normal game."

Team News

Brandon Barker, Donald Love, and Stu Moore remain sidelined for the Shrimps, while JJ McKiernan and Farrend Rawson may make a return to the squad on Monday afternoon.

Match Reports

Derby day delight for Shrimps against Barrow

1 April 2024

Goals from David Tutonda and Gwion Edwards saw Morecambe run out 2-1 winners in their second derby of the weekend.

Ged Brannan’s men were looking to build on a strong performance at Accrington on Good Friday, triumphing 2-1; a result which left the Shrimps just three points outside the play-off places.

Barrow also enjoyed a Good Friday victory winning 3-1 against struggling Grimsby to boost their promotion hopes.

Conditions were far from ideal for this pivotal clash, drizzle and an overcast sky providing a moody backdrop at the Mazuma Mobile Stadium.

The dull conditions were not reflected in Morecambe’s early running however, and the Reds flew into an early lead, taking the advantage after just three minutes.

A dangerous delivery from Joe Adams was scrambled behind by the Bluebirds, who failed to deal with the resulting corner.

The ball dropped to David Tutonda, and despite rarely finding himself with a sight of goal, stabbed home from close range to put the Shrimps one to the good.

Morecambe’s dream start continued, when Gwion Edwards capitalised on complacency in the visitors back line to steal the ball away from the centre-half.

One-on-one, the Welshman showed impressive composure, coolly taking the ball round Paul Farman in the Barrow goal, before slotting into an empty net to send the home support into raptures.

The visitors grew into the fixture as the first half wore on, enjoying the lions share of possession. Ged Brannan’s men continued to weather the storm, as Barrow looked to capitalise on their pressing intensity.

A low driven strike from in-form Cole Stockton on his return to the Mazuma Mobile Stadium marked the best Barrow could produce, but Archie Mair produced a fine stop with his feet to ensure the Shrimps advantage was maintained.

Morecambe looked to wrestle back control as the interval approached - Edwards in particular an outlet of creativity, causing the visitors defence headaches with his ability in transition.

Both sides were restricted to half chances as the opening 45 approached its conclusion, and time was called with Morecambe leading two goals to nil.

Half-time: Morecambe 2 Barrow 0

Sensing a need to change the momentum of the fixture, Barrow made an energetic start to the second half. The Shrimps defended resolutely, and despite largely being out of possession, rarely looked threatened.

Neither side were able to carve out any clear-cut opportunities, as the hour mark came and went.

Jordan Slew fired a speculative effort wide from distance, looking for his ninth of the season, and to secure three points for Ged Brannan’s men. At the other end, Stockton lashed a rare strike over the bar under pressure from Chris Stokes, as the Bluebirds desperately searched for a way back into the game.

Nelson Khumbeni should’ve put the game to bed for the Shrimps with 15 minutes to go, a pinpoint delivery from the right met the arriving Khumbeni, who glanced his header wide with the goal gaping.

It was Jacob Bedeau next, with an opportunity to cement the result. He lost his marker at the back post, but his diving header was cleared by a panicked Bluebirds defence.

Ben Whitfield gave the visitors hope with a mere 60 seconds of normal time remaining. A melee inside the Morecambe penalty area was fired home from close range by Whitfield, igniting the away support.

A breathless conclusion saw five additional minutes called for, and a heroic defensive display from the Shrimps; last-ditch defending aplenty to quash any Barrow hopes of late drama.

After a nervous five minutes of stoppage time were played, the Mazuma Mobile Stadium roared again as the final whistle blew. Six points on Easter weekend and back-to-back victories, Morecambe’s play-off push is reignited.
