MATCH PREVIEW | Morecambe v Mansfield Town

7 February 2020

The Shrimps host Mansfield Town at the Globe Arena on Saturday afternoon with Derek Adams looking to lift his side further from danger at the bottom of the table.

Graham Coughlan's side have won just two of their last 16 matches after throwing away a two-goal lead at home to Carlisle United last weekend, conceding a 94th minute Joshua Kayode equaliser.

Morecambe picked up eight points in January and have lost just one of their last eight games at the Globe Arena.

Five points separate the sides in the Sky Bet League Two table, with the Shrimps four points above bottom side, Stevenage.

Ahead of the fixture, boss, Derek Adams said: "Our home form has been very good, we're looking to take the game to Mansfield as we have done going away to Walsall and Cheltenham in our previous two games.

"We've played exceptionally well, we feel that we could have got more out of the game against Cheltenham and it was a terrific victory against Walsall.

"Mansfield are a team that are not too far ahead of us in the league table, we need to look to pick up a win at home, which will enable us to close the gap on them.

"You look at the league table and recently we've played a lot of teams in the top half and competed very well.

"It's important that now, we get points against the teams that are around and about us."
