Recent respective form guides

Barnet's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Bees have scored 6, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Morecambe's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Shrimps have hit 6 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Barnet are stuck down in the relegation zone of Npower League Two with a return of just 34 points from their 36 games thus far.

Morecambe are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 40 points from 36 matches.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Barnet at home in recent games, and, though we cannot see a run starting here, we do think the Bees will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
