On the other hand, the visitors will be desperate to end their poor run of form after failing to win any of their previous 10 competitive matches.

After enjoying a run of three successive victories across all competitions, Port Vale have lost their last two matches by a 1-0 scoreline, including Tuesday’s EFL Trophy defeat to Salford City.

Matt Smith scored what proved to be the winning goal in the 10th minute, which eventually ended Port Vale’s hopes of reaching the quarter-finals.

Having been knocked out of all three cup competitions this season, they will now be dreaming ot mounting a push for the League One playoffs with five points separating them from the top six.

Port Vale have not played a home game in over a month, so they will be pleased to return to Vale Park where they have won their last two competitive matches.

As Darrell Clarke’s side will be looking to claim a third consecutive home victory, they can draw inspiration from the fact that they have won their previous two home encounters with Morecambe.

While the Valiants may be targeting a playoff push, Morecambe face an huge task if they are to escape the relegation zone.

Morecambe are currently sitting at the bottom of the table, with six points separating them from safety after winning just two of their 21 league matches this season.

In their most recent game, Derek Adams took his side to Home Park to face his former club and current league leaders Plymouth Argyle, where they fell to a narrow 2-1 defeat.

The Shrimps have now gone over two months without a victory, and they will need to improve at both ends of the pitch after failing to keep a clean sheet in every match of their 10-game winless streak, while they are the second lowest-scorers in the division.

These two teams have previously met on 20 occasions, where Port Vale have claimed seven victories while Morecambe have won nine, and they have drawn in four. Morecambe have scored 23 goals and conceded 27 in the process.
