Bournemouth remain on course for automatic promotion after Anton Robinson's strike secured a 1-0 victory over play-off chasing Morecambe.

Robinson grabbed the only goal of the game in the 18th minute, firing a rasping right-footed shot past Barry Roche after Steve Fletcher had flicked on Lee Bradbury's long throw.

The second-placed Cherries thoroughly deserved their win against an out-of-sorts Morecambe, who only managed one meaningful shot on target.

The lively Josh McQuoid wasted a great chance to double Bournemouth's lead before half-time when he burst through but shot across the face of goal with only the keeper to beat.

Bournemouth called the tune for the bulk of a scrappy second half, but were unable to turn their pressure into goals.

Roche tipped a fierce shot from McQuoid over the bar and saved again from a hooked shot by Pitman.

Morecambe, who had beaten Bournemouth 5-0 before Christmas, stepped up the pressure in the closing stages, with Paul Mullen hitting the outside of the upright.

It was the only occasion they really threatened, despite pinning Bournemouth back in their own half in the latter stages.
