WHEELS HAVE FALLEN OFF FOR SHRIMPS

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

IT’S all gone wrong for More­cambe. But who didn’t see this com­ing?

They de­fied the book­mak­ers to be the earl­y­sea­son league lead­ers.

But the wheels have fallen off in re­cent weeks and this was a per­for­mance be­fit­ting their rel­e­ga­tion-favourites tag.

Credit to Don­caster who picked off their op­po­nents at will and were great value for the win. The day though, be­longed to James Cop­pinger.

His sta­tus as a Don­caster Rovers le­gend is in­dis­putable.

But he’s not still in the team for nostal­gic rea­sons. He is con­tribut­ing with the best of them and fully de­served the goal that com­pleted the scor­ing.

Don­caster are now above More­cambe in the ta­ble as you would ex­pect. But, as long as the Shrimps can halt this slide soon, it may well prove to be a sea­son of rel­a­tive suc­cess for both these teams, with Don­caster des­per­ate for pro­mo­tion and More­cambe con­tent to sur­vive with lit­tle fuss.
