Spotland

Morecambe managed to edge out Rochdale in Tuesday nights first round replay at Spotland to set up a second round replay with Coventry in the FA Cup.

With Rochdale temporarily down to 10-men (with a defender off injured after a knock to the head) Morecambe made the most of this to take the lead just before the break when Gary McDonald (44) finished from five-yards.

The Shrimps had their chances to double the lead but couldn't manage this, fortunately for the visitors the hosts didn't threaten that often so 1-0 was enough to send Morecambe into round two.
