Stat Attack: Notts County hoping to beat Morecambe for third time in a row


Notts have met Morecambe 12 times in their history.

Notts wins: 4
Draws: 3
Morecambe wins: 5

Before doing the double over Morecambe last season, Notts had a terrible record against The Shrimps, winning only two of the first ten meetings between the pair.

Last seasons 4-1 win at the Globe Arena was Notts’ first win there.

Four of the last seven meetings between the two have ended up finishing 4-1. (2009-10: Notts 4-1 Morecambe, 2015-16: Morecambe 4-1 Notts, 2016-17: Morecambe 4-1 Notts, 2017-18: Morecambe 1-4 Notts).


Morecambe have won their last two games in the league but suffered a 1-0 defeat to non-league Halifax in the FA Cup on Tuesday.

Notts are winless in their last six in the league and have failed to score in their past three games in all competitions.

Jim Bentley is currently the longest serving manager in the Football League.

They won their only FA Trophy in 1974 and are 5-time winners of the now defunct Lancashire Combination.
