Match ends, Morecambe 0, Hartlepool United 1.
Hartlepool improved their chances of avoiding relegation from League Two thanks to an Andy Parrish own goal.
The visitors had the better chances early on, as Aaron Tshibola and Dan Jones came close to getting the opener.
But it was Parrish who gave Pools the lead when he put Nicky Featherstone's long ball into his own net.
Both sides had shots cleared off the line in the second half, while Shrimps striker Kevin Ellison hit the bar from Laurence Wilson's cross.
