Crawley Town 1-1 Morecambe

Shaun Miller scored on his return from suspension to help Morecambe end a five-game losing run with a draw at Crawley Town.

Crawley's Jon Ashton cleared off the line from Alex Kenyon, while Frankie Sutherland fired wide for the hosts.

Matt Harrold followed up Lyle Della-Verde's blocked shot to make it 1-0.

A Chris Doyle flick-on from Paul Mullin's corner fell to Miller, who rescued a point seven minutes from time with a left-foot finish.

Crawley manager Mark Yates told BBC Surrey:

Yates on Crawley v Morecambe

"I think a draw's a fair result, it wasn't the most entertaining game.

"We were done by a set piece, but four points out of two games from where we were last Saturday, I have to take that, and be pleased with the lads' efforts, and the changes that we've made.

"The new players that have come in have given us something. They responded really well Tuesday and tried to do that again today."
