Let me entertain you - Morecambe host Leyton Orient in Sky Bet League 2

23 October 2015

Morecambe welcome Leyton Orient to the Globe Arena in Sky Bet League 2 this weekend, and the game promises to be an entertaining encounter.

Wherever Morecambe are, goals seem to follow. The ball has flown into the net 57 times in 14 games involving the Shrimps, with a remarkable 23 of those coming in their last four matches.

And Jim Bentley can be satisfied that the majority of the goals have gone the way of his team, who sit seventh ahead of their battle with the sixth-placed O's on Saturday afternoon.

So far this term, Morecambe have put three past Portsmouth, Carlisle United and Crawley Town, four past Notts County and Yeovil Town, and last Saturday they hit five against AFC Wimbledon.

In-form Shaun Miller has scored five in the past three, and has featured in the Sky Bet Football League Team of the Week for two consecutive weeks.
