Ellison: Almost added a second for Morecambe

Teenage striker Jordan Burrow earned Morecambe a 1-0 home win over Southend with his first league goal.

The 19-year-old, recently signed from Chesterfield, bundled home Lewis Alessandra's left-wing free-kick from close range in the 75th minute to send title-chasing Southend to a second defeat in a week.

It proved to be the decisive moment of a tight game which produced few chances. Bilel Mohsni went close for Southend on 56 minutes with a looping header that hit the top of the Morecambe crossbar before Burrow struck.

The Shrimps went close to a second when Kevin Ellison saw a shot deflected inches wide in the 90th minute before the visitors had a golden chance to level three minutes into injury time, only for Anthony Grant to drag a shot from the edge of the penalty area wide.

Southend went close with Ryan Hall seeing a long-range shot blocked by Chris McCready and Liam Dickinson curling an effort over the crossbar from the edge of the box.

Ellison again went close for the Shrimps with a shot that was deflected into the side-netting by Chris Barker before Laurence Wilson was just off target with an angled drive.
