Morecambe 0-0 Telford
Struggling Morecambe unveiled their new striker Julian Dowe for their Conference clash with Telford - but he couldn't grab a debut goal as the match finished 0-0.

Dowe went close on several occasions, while Telford were dangerous on the break.

The first-half ended on a rare high note with Telford's danger man, Gary Martindale, forcing Morecambe keeper Mark Smith into his first save of the game from a shot on the turn eight yards out.

The second period began with Martindale again at the forefront when he drilled a free kick inches wide of the Morecambe goal.

Just four minutes later however Morecambe were cruelly denied the lead by the woodwork.

Telford keeper Dean Williams spilled a fierce Stewart Drummond free kick and the ball fell for John Norman whose effort cleared the keeper but crashed against the Telford crossbar and away to safety.

From there the game became a totally scrappy affair, bereft of any skilful football or excitement.

Morecambe: M. Smith, McGuire, Hardicker, McKearney, Murphy, Walters, Rigoglioso, Drummond, Dowe., Norman, Lyons.
Subs: Black, Eastwood, Heald, L. Smith, Banks.

Telford United: Williams, Jobling, Davies, Moore, Gayle, Albrighton, McGorry, J. Cartwright, G. Martindale, Murphy, Palmer.
Subs: Sandwith, Price, J. Edwards, Bridgewater, S. Edwards.

Referee: A McGee (Liverpool).
