Morecambe recorded their first win for three games with a battling 2-0 win over Darlington.

After two successive defeats, Sammy McIlroy's side returned to winning ways thanks to goals in either half from Phil Jevons and Paul Mullin.

Jevons opened the scoring after 10 minutes when he finished superbly after running on to Laurence Wilson's through ball.

And Mullin doubled the advantage 12 minutes into the second half, the striker stabbing a loose ball past Shane Redmond from 12 yards.

Darlington's best effort came after 42 minutes when Alan White's close-range header was superbly tipped away by Barry Roche.

Tadgh Purcell was denied a late consolation by another fine save from Roche.
