Morecambe 2-1 Yeovil Town

Morecambe came back from a goal down to beat struggling Yeovil Town.

The Glovers took the lead after the break when defender Darren Ward bundled home after the hosts failed to clear a corner.

Winger Kevin Ellison showed neat feet to turn and fire home from 12 yards out to equalise for The Shrimps.

Morecambe won it in the 80th minute when top scorer Shaun Miller drifted in and hit an unstoppable curling effort beyond goalkeeper Artur Krysiak.
