Stockport   0 - 2   Morecambe

Stockport 0-2 Morecambe

Stockport 0-2 Morecambe

Morecambe leapfrogged Stockport in the League Two table thanks to goals from Chris Shuker and Jimmy Spencer.

Shuker put the Shrimps in front when he headed home from Mark Duffy's corner.

The visitors quickly doubled their lead after great work by Laurence Wilson left Spencer with a simple finish from close range.

County struggled throughout and only fashioned two chances of note, Robbie Williams twice unable to get the better of visiting keeper Barry Roche.


Stockport County manager Paul Simpson told BBC Radio Manchester:
"We've thrown bits at them but we haven't done enough over the whole game and I think it was a performance lacking in character or belief.

"We've ended up taking nothing out of a game that we desperately needed and wanted to win and if you perform like that you are not going to get a lot and give yourself a problem.

"At the moment we are in a real relegation scrap and it's going to be a tough end to the season."
