Added to that every City fan that guesses a correct score, from now until the end of the season, will enter into a draw for a signed shirt.

Any fan placing multiple bets, even if under different usernames, will be disqualified from entering that week's draw for tickets and any subsequent draws, as well as the draw for the signed shirt. Fans must write out the score in full i.e Gillingham 2 Exeter City 3, Gillingham 2 Exeter 3, to avoid confusion. Any bets not written out in full will be also disqualified.  All entries must be submitted before kick-off.

Game info: EXETER CITY go into the match away at Morecambe hoping for a record-breaking tenth away win of the season. And looking at the two sides respective table positions in League Two you would think the Grecians have a good chance of getting it. However on closer inspection, it is a likely to be a tougher match than many expect.

Morecambe go into the game on the back of impressive away wins at York City, 4-1, and Dagenham & Redbridge, 2-1. Last time out at the Globe Arena they also managed to hold high-flying Cheltenham to a 0-0 draw.

Exeter City's form on the other hand has suffered of late, cluminating in a a disappointing 0-0 draw with Aldershot on Saturday.
In injury news, City are missing Matt Oakley with a thigh problem. However Tommy Doherty, who was an unused substitute in the match against Aldershot, does offer a ready-made replacement for the former Leicester and Derby County midfielder. Added to that Morecambe normally line-up in a 4-3-3 formation and if they do, I can see City dominating the midfield area if they line-up in a 4-4-1-1 formation as expected.

However, overall I'm expecting a close match in this one and with Morecambe having four goalless draw at home since September and City struggling to find the net themselves, I can't see there being a lot of goals.

For those looking for a flutter on the match BetButler  https://exetercity.betbutler.co.uk/#home are currently offering some of the best odds around. They have Exeter priced at 15/8 for the win, which is slightly better than William Hill 9/5 and a lot better than Ladbrokes who have City priced at 13/8. For those thinking the match might end in a draw, your best bet is also with Bet Butler who have that priced at 5/2, beating William Hill at 21/10 and Ladbrokes at 12/5.

Under 2.5 goals also represents a smart move, but the bookies have realised that and aren't offering much value in that market. However, as part of an accy it might be worth it. Bet Butler again are priced well at 3/4, beating William Hill's 7/10.

Judge's score prediction: Morecambe 0 Exeter City 0
