Morecambe 1-4 Stevenage

Dean Parrett
Dean Parrett had only scored one goal this season before the trip to Morecambe

Dean Parrett scored twice as Stevenage moved above Morecambe after a comprehensive win at the Globe Arena.

Morecambe took an early lead through Cole Stockton, but from then on Stevenage dominated.

Alan Goodall managed to turn in Parrett's corner past his own keeper as Stevenage levelled before Parrett got his first on the break soon after.

Parrett was unmarked in the area to score his second from 12 yards before Ben Kennedy rounded the win off.

Morecambe, who drop to 21st place, have won just two of their last 18 games and have conceded 20 goals in their last five matches, while Stevenage are now 19th.
