A week after playing their first game with the Carabao Cup tie at Grimsby Town, the Shrimps’ 14th league campaign as an EFL club sees them heading to Gloucestershire.

Their first home league match comes a week later when Cambridge United visit the newly-christened Mazuma Stadium.

Derek Adams’ players will meet both promoted sides for the first time in December with Barrow and Harrogate Town visiting the club.

As in 2020, the Shrimps will start the year with a trip to Bradford City, who are also the visitors on the final day of the season.

The later start to the campaign also means more midweek matches than normal, most notably both games with Salford City and Exeter City as well as the trip to Bolton Wanderers at the end of December.
