Last Time We Met Morecambe

1 February 2018

Neil Aspin's men face Morecambe in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday afternoon, but what happened when the two sides last met back in October?

Vale travelled to the Globe Arena looking for back-to-back wins and they achieved that feat in emphatic style, scoring three goals without reply to secure the win.

With 18 minutes played, the Valiants got off to the perfect start as Tom Pope met a pinpoint cross from Ben Whitfield to slot a header beyond the reach of Morecambe goalkeeper, Barry Roche.

Despite the visitors looking in control, it took them a while to double their advantage. It was Pope who was on hand once more in the 67th minute, this time powering past three defenders inside the area before firing a finish into the corner of the net from close range.

The experienced striker then chipped in with an assist in stoppage time as Vale wrapped up the scoring. His delivery from the right picked out Cristian Montano and the winger made no mistakes with the finish, diverting the ball past Roche.

Our last meeting at Vale Park with Morecambe came back in February 2013 and it was the away side who came out on top on that occasion, Lewis Alessandra handing them three points in League Two.
