Create a spikes crosshair on simple line plot

How to add the horizontal white spikeline from hovermode='y unified' to the y axis tag from hovermode='y' (and remove the hovertemplate (inside the plot area) ? The result should have the gray label and a white solid line across the chart where the mouse (or otherwise a datapoint nearby is).

with hovermode='y' it is:

import numpy as np
import plotly.graph_objects as pl_go
import plotly.express as px

slug = np.random.random_sample((200,))

fig = pl_go.Figure()
fig.add_trace(  # DYNAMIC
    pl_go.Scatter(x=slug[:100],
                  y=slug[100:],

EDIT: is there a simple solution to get a crosshair under the cursor with x,y coordinates displayed near the tickerlabels, no local hover box? so much doc* but no simple crosshair

to make it simple, maybe i overlooked sth in the docs: how to make a white crosshair under the cursor with labels (second picture left gray label) showing on both axis of the 2d scatter plot?
