Morecambe 0-0 Accrington

Ian Dunbavin was Accrington's hero as he saved a stoppage-time penalty to earn his side a point at Morecambe.

Richard Brodie stepped up after Dean Winnard had brought down Kevin Ellison, but Dunbavin guessed right to the delight of the travelling fans.

The hosts had the better of the chances but could not find a way past the Stanley goalkeeper, with Jack Redshaw and Lewis Alessandra often denied.

The visitors played their part, but Barry Roche was also in fine form.


Morecambe manager Jim Bentley told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"After some of the saves that Ian Dunbavin pulled off in both halves, when you get a penalty in injury time, you think he's had that good a night that he'll probably save this as well.

"He pulled off an outstanding save to cap what was a world-class performance."

Accrington Stanley manager Leam Richardson told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"In the end it's a fantastic point. Morecambe played some good stuff and they obviously missed a penalty right at the end.

"We weren't at our best at all, so it's a very, very good point."
