We want him; Ryan Edwards - Massive presence in the centre of defence, barely gave Eoin Doyle and kick and blocked plenty of shots in gutsy display.

We don’t want him; Rhys Turner - Very ineffectual display and no surprise to see him substituted as Morecambe tried to eke more out of their faltering side.

Man of the Match; Gary Roberts - The magic has returned and looked more like the Roberts of earlier this season, prompting and probing and always threatening to create.

Magic Moment; Kal Naismith netted with a magnificent strike from distance barely 60 seconds after entering as substitute to prompt thoughts of being a spectacular match winner.

Their manager; Jim Bentley - His side defended magnificently and demonstrated plenty of guts and desire to snatch what appeared an unlikely draw.
