Morecambe face a trip to Leigh RMI at Hilton Park on Saturday evening, and have come away with little in previous meetings, having managed to conjure up just 1 wins from the previous 3 games.

Recent respective form guides

Leigh RMI need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Railwaymen have scored 7, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Morecambe's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the Shrimps have hit 6 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Leigh RMI are stuck down in the relegation zone of Nationwide Conference with a return of just 19 points from their 27 games thus far. Morecambe's 44 points from 28 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 8th position.
