Mansfield Town 1-2 Morecambe

Kevin Ellison's late header secured a comeback win for Morecambe at out-of-form Mansfield.

Ross Dyer gave the hosts the lead as his left-footed shot from inside the box found the bottom corner.

Substitute Jack Redshaw levelled from close range before Sam Clucas missed a chance to restore the Stags' lead when his penalty was saved by Barry Roche after the keeper felled Colin Daniel.

And Ellison's header into the top corner settled matters.

Defeat means Mansfield are now 10 games without a win, while Morecambe climb to within three points of the play-offs.
