Morecambe 1-2 Stevenage
On loan striker Akpo Sodje was the hero for Stevenage as he came off the bench to help clinch a win over Morecambe.

After a bright opening, it took Stevenage just 10 minutes to break the deadlock when Darren Hay found the net.

And the same player could have doubled the advantage after 29 minutes with a neat snapshot in the area which was well-saved by Morecambe keeper Mark Smith.

But Stevenage were not to be denied a second and when Sodje found himself unmarked on the edge of the box in the 63rd minute he fired the visitors further in front.

Four minutes later Morecambe clawed a goal back when a left-wing corner evaded everyone and bounced into the net off the back of the unsuspecting Stewart Drummond.

But the visitors never looked likely to surrender their lead and sat back in the closing stages to hold out for the win.

Morecambe: Mark Smith, Fensome, Lyons, McKearney, Hardiker, Murphy, Lee, Drummond, Talbot, Norman, Thompson. Subs: Zico-Black, McGuire, Quayle, Takano, McIlharghey.

Stevenage: Taylor, Hamsher, Trott, Smith, Cort, Phillips, Walters, Martin, Morgan, Hay, Illman. Subs: Armstrong, Akpo Sodje, Clarke, Wilkerson, Miller.

Referee: G Kellett (Bradford)
