Morecambe fell to defeat against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough by three goals to nil.
Barry Bannan's opener was further complimented by a Josh Windass brace, his goals coming either side of half time.
Sheffield Wednesday made a fast start and took the lead early on when the ball was pulled back to Bannan who side footed into the bottom left corner.
Connor Ripley made an impressive save on 20 minutes save to deny a low Windass effort from distance.
Wednesday doubled their lead a minute later when Michael Smith’s effort was bundled over the line by Windass.
The Shrimps were almost straight back in the game when Michael Mellon’s effort from the left-hand side of the box was well stopped by Owls' goalkeeper Cameron Dawson.
Morecambe came close again eight minutes before the break when Jensen Weir struck a free kick just over the Wednesday goal.
Half-time: Sheffield Wednesday 2 Morecambe 0
The Shrimps came close to pulling one back when Cole Stockton volleyed Liam Shaw’s cross from the right towards goal and saw his effort saved by Dawson.
Bannan then nearly found a second 15 minutes from time when his curling effort from range flew wide of Ripley’s right-hand post.
Windass got his second and The Owls' third three minutes from time when substitute Fisayo Dele-Bashiru found him in the box to convert and round off the processing.
