Morecambe 2 Blackpool 2

29 July 2015

Morecambe maintain their unbeaten pre season campaign with a 2-2 draw against Blackpool in a behind closed doors friendly.

Goals from Lee Molyneux and Kevin Ellison saw The Shrimps twice come from behind against a Pool side skippered by former Shrimps striker Jack Redshaw.

Former Luton striker Mark Cullen gave Blackpool the lead 18 minutes in, firing a low shot beyond the reach of Barry Roche from 12 yards after jinking his way past Andy Parrish.

The Shrimps then had the better of the chances with Molyneux, Laurence Wilson and Tom Barkhuizen all having sights of goal.

They failed to find the target in the first half but started the second period well with Alex Kenyon testing Kyle Letheren before Molyneux equalised on 57 minutes with a fine low finish from 15 yards.

It was the visitors who went back in front 20 minutes from time with trialist Adam Drury firing in a deflected shot that went through the hands of Roche.

Ellison then levelled things up on 82 minutes arrowing a left-footed shot into the bottom corner from 20 yards.
