Morecambe   1 - 0   Aldershot

Morecambe 1-0 Aldershot

Morecambe 1-0 Aldershot

Garry Hunter's second-half goal secured victory for Morecambe and a place in the League Two play-offs in their final league game at Christie Park.

Damien Spence and Marlon Jackson both missed good chances for the Shots as the first half ended scoreless.

Bury's 1-1 draw at Northampton meant a point would have sufficed for the Shrimps but Hunter slotted home Paul Mullin's low cross for victory.

Fourth-placed Morecambe next face Dagenham in their play-off semi-final.

Aldershot, who had sealed their play-off spot last week, will take on Rotherham in other two-leg semi.


Aldershot assistant manager Gary Owers told BBC Surrey:

"We had a few chances to take the lead, didn't take them and got done in the second half.

"Thankfully we didn't have to come here today and get a result. We did the business last week and secured our play-off place.

"We just want the players to have a good attitude and perform to the best of their ability."
