The draw no bet market helped me last weekend so I will use the same approach again in this preview with Morecambe backed to avoid defeat at York.

Morecambe won 2-1 at Dagenham last weekend to give their survival bid a real boost and they now sit 17th with an eight-point gap to the relegation zone.

York are one point and one place above the Shrimps so Saturday's clash at Bootham Crescent has all the makings of a tight contest.

Morecambe enter the game in better form with just one defeat in six matches compared to York's no win in four encounters.

It's Jim Bentley's men I fancy to pick up the three points but taking the draw no bet option is the sensible way to go.

York have drawn their last three games on the spin and Bentley has already spoken of the type of match he expects on Saturday.

"I have always said that we have a squad that has a lot of character and they showed that on Saturday at Dagenham to come from a goal down for the second time in a couple of weeks," he told The Visitor.

"York have drawn a lot of games this season and that tells me that they are a very solid team who are hard to beat.

"They have done well since being promoted and we know full well that we have another difficult game ahead of us but we can certainly take confidence from last Saturday."

The 7/4 available for Morecambe in the draw no bet betting is well worth a look in a tight contest I think they can win.
