Tranmere fought back to end Morecambe's 100% winning record in League Two.

Shrimps captain Mark Hughes opened the scoring when he headed in at the far post from Jamie Devitt's corner.

However, Tranmere improved in the second half and Cole Stockton took the ball around Barry Roche before firing past defenders on the line to equalise.

Hughes was later sent off for an off-the-ball incident with Kayode Odejayi, before Stockton turned in Matt Hill's cross for a dramatic late winner.

It completed a superb week for the young striker, who signed a new long-term contract with Rovers in midweek.

Morecambe manager Jim Bentley told BBC Radio Lancashire:

"That's football - you've got to take it on the chin.

"We've been winning recently and I've made sure we've not been getting too high. Tonight I've got to make sure we don't get too low.

"We've got to be level-headed and look where we can improve. It's disappointing to lose in the manner we have, with 10 men in the 92nd minute."
