Morecambe produced their second successive win after a fine performance gave them a 2-1 victory against Southend.

The Shrimps secured the double over the Shrimpers with Stewart Drummond's header just after the hour giving Sammy McIlroy's side only their fifth home win of the campaign.

Morecambe started well and took the lead just before the half hour when Chris McCready nipped in front of his marker to head a Kevan Hurst corner past Rhys Evans from six yards out.

After a poor first half Southend came back strongly after the break and were level in the 51st minute thanks to a penalty. Hurst was adjudged to have brought down Anthony Grant in the area and Barry Corr stepped up to place the spot kick beyond Barry Roche.

The home side came back strongly and regained the lead just after the hour when Drummond rose above Chris Barker to head past Evans from six yards out.

Morecambe went close to a third when Danny Carlton hit the crossbar with a long range effort before Southend came close to a late equaliser when Ryan Hall's free kick was deflected inches wide.
