Morecambe strong recent run came to a halt away at Burton but Jim Bentley’s playoff chasers were only narrowly beaten by high flyers Burton Albion. They are 9 points off 7th placed Cheltenham so anything less than a win will deal them a big blow. They have only lost 3 games all season against teams in the bottom half of the table.
Rochdale took a 3-0 beating against struggling Accrington. The Dale have only won 1 game since the return of Kieth Hill to the Spotlands helm. Just 1 win in 6 Rochdale could get sucked back into the relegation battle if they are not careful and Morecambe will be a very tough fixture for them to pick up any points.
