Torquay 1-1 Morecambe

Kevin Ellison notched a late equaliser for Morecambe at Torquay.

The hosts went in front when Billy Bodin, who had hit the bar in the first half, played in skipper Lee Mansell to sweep home.

Shrimps keeper Barry Roche made a superb reflex save from Chris McPhee before Laurence Wilson brilliantly cleared the same player's rebound.

Moments later Ellison broke away on the halfway line and coolly rounded Gulls custodian Bobby Olejnik to level.


Torquay United manager Martin Ling told BBC Radio Devon:

"We got our noses in front and had two great chances when we were 1-0 ahead but they also had two one-on-ones which they missed.

"The frustrating thing is that from our attack they ran the length of the pitch and equalised.

"It wasn't meant to be. At least we didn't go behind and we've matched a top of the table team."
