Unless their attacking efforts improve, then the National League is where Port Vale are likely to end up come May. Port Vale are struggling for results, theres no two ways about it. In fact, John Askeys men have scored just three goals in their last nine. Despite not being bowled over all that often, Saturdays hosts are finding themselves being touched off on a regular basis, while theyre paying the price for a lack of final-third quality. Vale have now failed to score in each of their last three League Two matches.

In fact, Saturdays host have often performed well at home. On that occasion, the Shrimps dominated proceedings, a repeat of which ought to see them do well on Saturday. There was also plenty to like about the way Morecambe played when they drew 1-1 against Notts County at home prior to their defeat at Stadium mk. Having outplayed the likes of Northampton, Swindon, Macclesfield and Notts County at home during the current campaign, they arent likely to show much fear against Port Vale.

Form Summary

Scoring goals is not necessarily Vales forte, but theyve offered lots more than their opponents in terms of creativity and they go up against a weak Morecambe back-line, which should aid their cause. With them boasting 1.36 expected goals for at home, against a visiting side that averages just 0.88 expected goals for on the road, the hosts are fancied to narrowly come out on top in a low-scoring affair.

On paper it looks as though Morecambe were soundly beaten by the Dons last time out, though Bentleys men acquitted themselves well against a very strong opponent. In fact, as the fact that they ended the match with an expected goal supremacy of +0.52 suggests, they were a tad unfortunate not to get something. That defeat will be disappointing, though their performance should leave Morecambe feeling good ahead of this match.

The Shrimps, whove scored just once in their last three away games, have scored even less goals away from home than the hosts have scored at Vale Park, while theyre also offering considerably less in terms of creativity. Fortunately, Port Vale are up against a Morecambe side that has struggled immensely from an attacking point of view when playing away from home.

Port Vale backed up this victory with a 4-0 drubbing of Stoke City U21 on Tuesday evening in the EFL Trophy tie. Interestingly, the Colombian midfielder has previously failed to find the back of the net in any of nine appearances for the Valiants. Left winger Christian Montano was the man who stole the show back then by completing a brace at Huish Park Stadium. The visitors come into it in higher spirits following a demolishing 0-3 victory over Yeovil Town in the previous round.

Saturdays hosts have conceded in nine of their last ten at home, have conceded at least twice in three of their last five and are shipping an average of 1.67 goals and 1.58 expected goals. If they were very good at the back, such low attacking numbers might not be the biggest problems but keeping things tight on home soil isnt something that Vale have done all that often. From a creativity point of view, Port Vale have done a bit better on their own patch, as theyve averaged 1.36 expected goals for, which tells us that they probably should have scored a few more than they have, though the fact that theyve scored an average of just 1.06 shows that they lack end-product.

To be more precise, the selection that catches the eye is Port Vale to Win & Under 3.5 Goals. Given that theyre by no means a good side, it wont be easy for punters to side with the hosts ahead of Saturdays clash at Vale Park, but it is the hosts who stand out in the betting. Not often have Port Vale had a good opportunity to secure three points, but it looks like theyve stumbled across one here.
