Striker Tom Barkhuizen's two goals secured a 2-1 win at Notts County that lifts Morecambe into the League Two play-off places.

Barkhuizen's opener in the rescheduled game was a volley that squeezed under Adam Collin from Michael Rose's cross.

The second was despatched from the spot after a handball by Louis Laing.

Vadaine Oliver scored late on, with Jon Stead, Alex Rodman and Jonathan Forte among those denied in a second-half flurry.

But the Shrimps held out, with former Nottingham Forest keeper Barry Roche in inspired form.
