Yeovil Town 3-2 Morecambe

Ryan Seager's goal for hometown club Yeovil sealed a 3-2 win against fellow relegation-battlers Morecambe in League Two.

Richie Bennett gave the Shrimps the lead in the 22nd minute when Aaron Collins made the most of some poor defending to tee up Bennett to head in.

Two goals in four second-half minutes from Tristan Abrahams then turned things around.

The first came after a good run from Alex Dobre before quick feet from Courtney Duffus gave Abrahams time and space to put it in the bottom corner in the 58th minute.

The Norwich loanee picked out the same spot in the 62nd minute to give Yeovil the lead, but Morecambe thought they had rescued a point in the 83rd minute when Steven Old turned in a cross from substitute Liam Mandeville.

However, Seager saved the best until last. Six minutes after coming off the bench the Yeovil-born striker picked the ball up 25 yards out and turned before curling a shot that hit the underside of the bar before bouncing over the line.
