Morecambe 1-0 Accrington Stanley

Aaron Wildig scored the only goal as Morecambe beat Accrington, their first ever win over their Lancashire rivals in the Football League.

Wildig's curling strike from just inside the box proved the vital moment of a tight encounter.

The Shrimps came close to a second but Alan Goodall's long-range effort hit the crossbar.

Stanley missed chances to equalise, the best fell to Adam Morgan who failed to hit the target from six yards.
