Accrington Stanley 2-2 Morecambe

Accrington Stanley slipped out of League Two's automatic promotion places after drawing with Morecambe.

Shaun Miller evaded four tackles and shot into the far corner for his 15th league goal this season to put the Shrimps in front.

Josh Windass fired home the equaliser before putting Stanley ahead from the spot after Andy Parrish was ruled to have pushed Billy Kee.

But Morecambe earned a point when Tom Barkhuizen went through one-on-one.

The Shrimps sit in 19th, while Accrington sit in fourth place on goal difference behind Bristol Rovers, who beat Yeovil.
