Having agonisingly missed out on a play-off place last season after finishing a point behind winners Northampton, the Valiants will be hoping to reach those heights again this time around.
Under new ownership, Port Vale have started the season well, registering two wins while failing to concede. Although last week’s stalemate against Harrogate Town prevented them from making it three wins out of three, they will take comfort in the fact that the defensive side of their game looked strong.
Saturday’s opponents Morecambe narrowly escaped the drop last season, but welcomed additions in Nathaniel Night-Percival and Harry Davis have seen them begin this campaign with two wins out of three. Despite their positive start, however, defensive questions still remain having conceded the joint-second most goals in the league alongside Oldham, who are in the bottom three.
Port Vale possess more quality throughout the pitch than Morecambe, so we’ve tipped them to grab either a 1-0, 2-0, or 2-1 victory here at 9/4 - click this link to have this in your bet slip.
