First time: Carl Fletcher’s Pilgrims drew 1-1 at home to Morecambe on Saturday, November 5, 2011. Captain Simon Walton was our scorer and his goal looked like being the winner until Nick Fenton popped up to grab an equaliser for the Shrimps deep into second-half injury-time.

Last time: Derek Adams’ Argyle won 1-0 at home to the Lancashire club on Saturday, March 18, 2017. Graham Carey was our goal scoring hero as the Pilgrims took another important step towards promotion to League One

Biggest win: John Sheridan’s team followed up their midweek 4-0 win over Fleetwood Town by thrashing Morecambe 5-0 at Home Park on Saturday, March 1, 2014 for their third successive victory. Durrell Berry, Lewis Alessandra (2), Curtis Nelson and Andres Gurrieri were our goal scorers.

Heaviest defeat: Morecambe have never won at Home Park.

Most goals in a single game: Five, in our 5-0 win back in March 2014.

Further interesting facts: Jim Bentley was Morecambe manager in each of their six previous visits to Home Park. All of these matches have been League Two fixtures.

Derek Adams is the second former Argyle manager to return to Home Park in the opposition dugout this season. Carl Fletcher was the first, of course, in his brief 29-day stay as manager of Leyton Orient.

Kevin Ellison, goalkeeper Barry Roche and Lewis Alessandra all played for the Shrimps on their first visit to Argyle in November 2011 and all three are in the current Morecambe squad. Alessandra, of course, spent two seasons at Home Park under John Sheridan. Ellison is the only one of the three who has appeared on all six occasions that the Lancastrians have played in Plymouth. Roche missed the 2014-15 match with Andreas Arestidou between the sticks that day.
