Match Report: Notts County pegged back late on at Morecambe


Not great, but much better. Notts County put in a much improved performance against Morecambe at the Globe Arena today, but they relinquished a one-goal lead late on for a 1-1 final score.

The first half was pretty dour and with little to write home about, save for a good Kristian Dennis one-on-one chance which Mark Halstead skilfully kept out.

In the second period, Morecambe stepped up and Ajay Leitch-Smith threatened, while Liam Mandeville having an effort tipped behind inside the first five minutes.

Notts went on to take the lead, however, a cross from the right being nodded beyond Halstead's reach by Kristian Dennis on 52 minutes.

Nathan Thomas almost doubled County's lead when he saw a fierce drive parried to safety by the opposition goalkeeper, while Morecambe stepped up in a bid to salvage something from the game.

And salvage something they did, when a scramble in the box culminated in Kevin Ellison turning the ball home after a goalmouth scramble following a corner.

Five minutes of injury time were played out, during which Jamie Turley was called out by the opposition players for an alleged handball, but nothing was given as the spoils ended up being shared.
