    Morecambe come into this game sixth from bottom and need three points to be certain of League One football next season. Sunderland are also in need of three points to confirm their position in the end of season play-offs.

    The hosts are winless in their last two and have taken just four points from their last four games. The Black Cats are in excellent form going unbeaten in 12 with two of their last three finishing all-square.

    At the Mazuma Stadium, the Shrimpers are tough opponents losing none of their last three and just one of their last eight. On the road, the North-Eastern side have drawn six of their last ten.

    Derek Adams is the man in the Morecambe dugout taking over in February and now being close to leading them to safety. Sunderland are doing well under Alex Neil but they still need to get over the finishing line.

    Both teams to score is a common feature of Morecambe matches and has happened in four of their last five. It also occurs often in matches involving Sunderland happening in four of their last five.

    Taking both teams to net looks the bet here given both sides are going to have to push for all three points to secure their aims. This has happened in four of the last five for both teams.

    Elliott Embleton has three goals from his last five Sunderland appearances and will fancy his chances of a goal here. He is up against a Morecambe defence that has kept just one clean sheet in the last 20.
