Derek Adams believes that Morecambe’s home form will stand them in good stead for getting a positive result against Swindon Town.

The Shrimps are yet to lose a game at the Mazuma Stadium this season, picking up wins against Walsall, Bradford City, and Salford City, as well as securing a draw against Notts County, helping to offset an away record where Adams’ side are yet to pick up a point.

Town have struggled a little more on their travels than at the County Ground so far, despite remaining unbeaten, drawing twice and winning once in three away matches.

Adams said that he was prepared for an exciting game but felt that with the way Morecambe have performed on their own patch this season, that strong home record could be a decisive factor.

Speaking to club media, he said: “They [Swindon’s] have been really exciting games for them this season, they have scored a good number of goals, but they have also conceded goals as well.

“It looks like it will be an open affair and we have players who have shown at home how well they can play.

“We have had some really good fixtures already this season and I am going into this game looking forward to continuing our home form.

“The crowd have been magnificent with us this season, particularly at home because they have seen us win.

“It is important that you give your home supporters something to shout about, and we have done that.

“We are coming off a fabulous win against Salford in the last home game that we had, and we want to continue that.”

With Swindon being the EFL’s top goal scorers so far this season, netting 22 goals in seven matches, Adams was aware of the various threats that Town pose in attack.

He said: “They have good experience throughout their side and they have youthfulness as well.

“They have taken Jake Young on loan from Bradford, who has done exceptionally well for them.

“[Charlie] Austin up front is a renowned striker, [Dan] Kemp in behind, and they have good energy throughout their side.

“It is a little bit like that [their 0-0 draw against Notts County], but I wouldn’t say that Swindon play exactly the same way as Notts County.

“They play a different style and have different players, but from our point of view it is probably more like that Walsall game.”
