Southend United 0-1 Morecambe

Morecambe ended their run of three straight defeats with a narrow win over in-form Southend.

The hosts went in favourites after winning their last four games, but were quickly behind and did not recover.

Jack Redshaw met Shaun Beeley's long ball, and fired in first time on the volley from 12 yards to earn Morecambe the victory.

Conor Clifford hit the bar for Southend before Shrimps substitute Andy Fleming fired wide when through on goal.
