Exeter City 1-1 Morecambe

Alex Nicholls
Alex Nicholls scored his sixth goal of the season against Morecambe

Substitute Alex Nicholls' late goal salvaged a point for Exeter at home to Morecambe in League Two.

The home side started the brighter, but Morecambe went ahead when Jamie Devitt crossed to the back post and Aaron McGowan hammered in a low shot.

The Grecians struggled to carve out decent opportunities, but they equalised on 80 minutes.

Alex Nicholls lashed home from Tom Nichols' cross, who was then sent off in stoppage time for violent conduct.
