Morecambe 1-1 AFC Wimbledon

Kevin Ellison

Morecambe missed out on the chance to go top of the League Two table after being held to a draw by Wimbledon.

Kevin Ellison gave the hosts an early lead when he fired a left-footed shot from the edge of the box into the top right-hand corner.

Wimbledon grabbed their equaliser when George Porter's cross was nodded home at the far post by Michael Smith.

Midfielder Harry Pell went close for the visitors late-on, but his right-footed effort flew wide.


Morecambe manager Jim Bentley told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"You're not always going to have a thriller like Chesterfield. It was a poor game.

"We started quite brightly and scored a good goal, but a draw was a fair result.

"There weren't many chances for either side. They frustrated us and fair play to them for that. They got their tactics right."

AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley told BBC London 94.9:

"I think after a spell of a point from nine games, especially against some teams who were down there and struggling, you can't come in gung-ho against a team unbeaten in eight.

"We had to come up with a game plan and implement it and we did which was very pleasing.

"It was a good level of performance. We limited them to few chances and, after going a goal down, we fought back well and we could have even nicked one late on.

"We are not a top-four or possibly top-six side but we are going to be there or thereabouts. It's a big improvement on where we were last season."
