Morecambe 0-0 Tranmere Rovers

Tranmere's Marc Laird
Marc Laird's last goal came against Cheltenham on 23 August

Morecambe failed to score for the third home game in succession, but avoided defeat against Tranmere in a poor game at the Globe Arena.

The hosts' Kevin Ellison lobbed a shot just wide late in a dour first half.

Tranmere's Marc Laird squandered the best chance of the game soon after - heading over with the goal gaping.

Jack Renshaw volleyed straight at goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams at the other end, but neither side did enough to force a victory.
