Morecambe moving up

Published Add your comment

Morecambe won a thriller against Burton 3-2 to move within two places of the play-offs in Coca-Cola League Two.

Albion's Jacques Maghoma opened the scoring from long range (23) but Stewart Drummond quickly headed Morecambe level from close range (28) only for Shaun Harrad to restore Burton's lead four minutes before the break.

Each side also hit the woodwork twice before Drummond turned provider for Phil Jevons' equaliser 18 minutes from time, and Paul Mullin's 85th-minute header settled it.

The Shrimpers therefore moved level on points with Aldershot, who went down 2-0 at Hereford. Gavin McCallum's close-range finish set the Bulls on their way (27) before Chris Blackburn diverted Marc Pugh's cross into his own goal (35).

Lincoln mounted a late comeback to beat Accrington 2-1. Michael Symes set up Robert Grant for Stanley's opener on the half-hour mark but Steven Lennon equalised seven minutes from time and Darran Kempson's unfortunate stoppage-time own goal settled matters.
