Morecambe 1-2 Accrington Stanley

An injury-time winner from Peter Murphy earned bottom-placed Accrington a second successive League Two victory.

Accrington took the lead after Barry Roche was adjudged to have brought down James Gray and Danny Webber stepped up to score.

Jack Sampson levelled after the ball ran free to him following an excellent save from keeper Marcus Bettinelli.

And Murphy scored from close range after the home defence failed to clear Piero Mingoia's left-wing cross.
