Morecambe 0-0 York City

Nick Pope and Keith Lowe combined to secure a point for York at Morecambe.

Goalkeeper Pope saved well from a close-range Padraig Amond header before Lowe cleared Alex Kenyon's follow-up off the line.

Shrimpers keeper Barry Roche produced a series of fine first-half blocks to deny Ryan Jarvis and Lewis Montrose.

Morecambe's Stewart Drummond, Jack Sampson and Chris McCready and York's Lanre Oyebanjo had chances to break the deadlock in the second half.

Post-match: Morecambe boss Bentley

Morecambe manager Jim Bentley told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"It was an end-to-end game and both sets of players came off with nothing left in the tank.

"Both keepers have been fantastic. We've both created plenty of chances and the only thing that was missing, unfortunately for us, was a goal. We're just struggling a little bit at the moment to score goals but it's not for the want of trying.

"On another day, we could have scored a few more. It's a point gained."

York City manager Nigel Worthington told BBC Radio York:

"We got the clean sheet, I'm delighted with that and after that we created enough chances to probably win three games.

"Trying to get everything at once is difficult but I've got to give the players credit they put another shift in. They kept their shape very well.

"They deserved a point and it could have been three."
