Shrewsbury   1 - 3   Morecambe

Highlights - Shrewsbury 1-3 Morecambe

Shrewsbury dropped down to seventh in League Two as their poor run of form continued at the hands of Morecambe.

A Dean Holden headed own goal put the visitors in front, before James Spencer made it 2-0, poking home a loose ball.

Laurence Wilson extended the lead from the spot after Mat Sadler had fouled Mark Duffy but Morecambe had Spencer sent off for a violent foul on Holden.

Shane Cansdell-Sherriff pulled a goal back but it was not enough as Town's winless run extended to four matches.


Shrewsbury Town manager Graham Turner told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"We set ourselves a very difficult task with the early goal we conceded. It was a comedy of errors, and it set everybody on edge.

"At half time, I said we were still in it, if we could get a goal back. Instead we conceded a penalty.

"We've got to be honest with ourselves. There are obvious shortcomings. We're an easy side to play against.

"Teams playing against us are getting hold of it, passing it with some precision, because we're not doing our job right defensively."
