Match Preview: Morecambe (Second Leg)

21 May 2021

It was a dominant display on the ball from Rovers at Prenton Park on Thursday night but suffered two sucker punches from two set pieces to trail on aggregate heading into the second leg.

One to watch 

Forward, Carlos Mendes Gomes.

A product of the Athletico Madrid youth system, Mendes Gomes has been a constant threat for The Shrimps this campaign. 

After moving to England with his family in 2016, he signed for non league side West Didsbury and Chorlton but after two years there it was evident that Carlos could make the step up the pyramid.

In 2018 he signed for Morecambe and has this season in particular, displayed his attacking qualities and helped Morecambe to a 4th place finish this season.

Chipping in with 15 goals and five assists in all competitions, Rovers will have to be wary of Mendes Gomes’ pace and power going forward.
