Morecambe and Bristol Rovers played out an entertaining draw in League Two.

Jack Redshaw fired the hosts into the lead in the second minute with a first-time strike from 25 yards that gave keeper Steve Mildenhall no chance.

Redshaw saw another effort cleared off the line before Eliot Richards darted in to head past Barry Roche from six yards out.

Lewis Alessandra struck a post for the Shrimps while Richards could only shoot tamely at Roche when through on goal.
