Oxford United 1-1 Morecambe

George Baldock's superb solo effort rescued a late point for struggling Oxford United against Morecambe.

Baldock, on loan from MK Dons, dribbled past three players and fired in from 18 yards for an 87th-minute leveller.

Kevin Ellison had put the Shrimps in front early on, following up the rebound from Jack Redshaw's saved shot.

Josh Ruffels had the U's best chance of an equaliser before Baldock's interjection, which sees them five points above the drop zone.
