Match Reports

STEVENAGE 1-0 MORECAMBE

26 October 2019

SCOTT Cuthbert scored the only goal of the game as the Shrimps lost this bottom of the table clash.

Cuthbert struck with a header from a corner eight minutes from time to give Stevenage the three points that saw them leapfrog the Shrimps at the foot of the table.

Shrimps’ boss Jim Bentley made one change to the side that lost to Forest Green with Shaun Miller coming in for the suspended Lewis Alessandra.

Stevenage had the better of the early exchanges with Kelland Watts heading a corner straight at Barry Roche before Charlie Lakin, fired a long-range effort that flew wide of the post.

Watts then saw an acrobatic left-foot volley cleared off the line by Alex Kenyon and Kurtis Guthrie twice fired inches wide from the edge of the box.

Morecambe then had a golden chance to take the lead themselves when Shaun Miller was out in on goal but saw his effort well saved by Sacha Bastion.

Morecambe thought they had taken the lead early in the second half when Cole Stockton’s superb low volley from the edge of the box flew into the bottom left hand corner only for Shaun Miller to have been adjudged to be offside for interfering with play.

The pressure was building on the away team’s defence as they were facing the game without possession. Lakin and Parrett both saw chances fly wide of the goal just before the hour mark as Stevenage looked for that crucial opening goal.

With 10 minutes left Dean Parrett found Charlie Carter alone just inside the area but his powerful shot was well saved by Roche.

With the game entering the final stages Stevenage got the all-important goal as Carter swung in a corner kick which was met by the Club Captain Cuthbert.

Eight minutes was awarded to the away side as Sampson made his final change of the game when Parrett was replaced with Mackail-Smith but as the final whistle blew it was relief for Stevenage as the Club leap-frogged Morecambe to move off the bottom of the league.
