A superb goal from Laurence Wilson gave Morecambe a 1-0 victory over Cheltenham - their third successive League Two victory.

Wilson scored with a stunning individual effort after 24 minutes when he waltzed his way past several weak Cheltenham challenges to slot the ball past Scott Brown.

From there Brown saved well from a long-range Michael Twiss effort and Phil Jevons had a shot deflected wide after a last-gasp challenge from Kyle Haynes.

The second half saw the Robins pile on the pressure with Ben Marshall firing over seconds after the restart and Andy Parrish cleared off the line from Justin Richards.

The visitors brought on veteran strikers Julian Alsop and Barry Hayles towards the end with the latter forcing Barry Roche into a decent tip over from a long-range effort but they could not find a leveller.
