Kevin Ellison
Kevin Ellison scored his first goal of the season against Yeovil

Morecambe fought back from two goals down to see off 10-man Yeovil Town in a thrilling encounter.

Yeovil led 2-0 after a rollercoaster first half thanks to Harry Cornick's shot and Omar Sowunmi's header either side of Shaun Jeffers' dismissal.

But Aaron Wildig hooked in and Andrew Fleming poked home to level.

Lee Molyneux then clinically finished off a quick counter-attack before substitute Kevin Ellison headed in the fourth to wrap up a dramatic win.
