Shrimps battle for decent point
MORECAMBE and Burton Albion both had to settle for a point after a drab goal less draw at the Globe Arena.
In a game that saw both sets of defenders on top Morecambe created the better chances but failed to find the target as they looked for rare back to back home wins.
The best chances fell to Lewis Alessandra in the second half with one effort from the right hand side of the box fizzing just over before he missed the best chance of the game when he was one on one with Stuart Tomlinson but lobbed the ball over the bar when he should have done better.
Burton only tested Morecambe’s debutant keeper Andreas Arestidou once throughout the 90 minutes with a long range shot from Jacques Maghoma forcing the former Preston keeper into an uncomfortable save.
Maghoma drilled a first half shot into the side netting but Albion’s only effort of note in the second half was a long range Robbie Weir shot that flew well wide of the left hand post.
Morecambe finished the game on the front foot but Jack Redshaw and Andy Fleming both fired horribly wide from good openings.
