Morecambe 2-4 Cambridge United

Shaun Derry picked up his first win as Cambridge United manager as his side defeated Morecambe in League Two.

Leon Legge's header gave the U's an early lead, but Lee Molyneux finished off a fine Shrimps move to level.

The U's led 3-1 at the break, first Ryan Donaldson turning in after Ben Williamson's effort was saved and then a strike from debutant Cameron Gayle.

Williamson then scored his first U's goal with a fine finish, before Peter Murphy's volley provided consolation.
