Donaldson: Opened the scoring

Strugglng Morecambe suffered their second successive home defeat in League Two on Saturday, losing 2-1 to Crewe.

Two goals at the beginning and the start of the first half were enough to give the Alex the three points and add to the Shrimps' growing problems at the foot of the table.

Crewe went ahead after just four minutes at the Globe Arena. Clayton Donaldson broke through the centre of Morecambe's defence and with only Barry Roche to beat produced a clinical finish from just inside the box.

Byron Moore was denied by Roche but added a second Crewe goal on the stroke of half time when he slotted home Shaun Miller's lay off when left unmarked in the box to score from 12 yards out. .

Morecambe had a glorious chance to pull one back after 84 minutes with a penalty but the normally deadly Phil Jevons saw his effort saved by Rhys Taylor.

The home side were rewarded with a goal at the death when Chris Shuker's shot from the left hand side of the area took a deflection to beat Taylor but it was too little too late.
