Forest Green prepare to entertain Morecambe at The Lawn on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 4 of the 8 previous games, with the Rovers winning just 2.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at The Lawn was less than a year ago, in October 2004, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-3 winners in a Conference match.
