Morecambe 2-2 York

Football League newcomers York twice fought back from a goal down to earn a point at Morecambe.

Richard Brodie fired the hosts ahead from the penalty spot after Gary McDonald was felled by Chris Doig.

Lanre Oyebanjo's free-kick was headed back across goal and Chris Smith was in the right place to nod in for 1-1.

Stewart Drummond volleyed the Shrimps back in front, but Ashley Chambers converted at the second attempt after Barry Roche saved his first effort.

"I'm delighted. It's always important to get the first point on the table and we've done that.

"It's important for the players mentally that we came here and got a point.

"The disappointment for me is that we've conceded two goals and we've had two or three other chances.

"I think if we'd been a bit livelier, particularly in the first half, we could have had a couple of goals and been more positive."
