Salford City came away from Morecambe with a fifth straight League Two draw after an entertaining game at The Globe Arena.
The Ammies started well when Danny Lloyd put us in front after 15 minutes, diverting a long range Richie Towell shot into the bottom corner, however the winger then missed a penalty.
Morecambe hadn’t been in the game in the first half, but found incentive and within five minutes of the restart were 2-1 up thanks to goals from Shaun Miller and top scorer Lewis Alessandra.
Lloyd was the impetus as his free kick was missed by Shrimps keeper Barry Roche for the equaliser, and Towell could have wrapped up the three points in the last 10 minutes, but he had a penalty saved and Salford had to settle for another point.
“It’s a game we should have won 4-0,” said Graham Alexander afterwards.
“That five minutes of absolute madness undid all the good work we did in the first half that we dominated, created chances.
“I can’t get to grips with the first five minutes in my head, I need to see it.
“We’ve have the opportunity right at the end to get the winner and unfortunately haven’t taken it. Take the penalties out of it, we should have won that game comfortably.
“You’ve got to give credit to Morecambe, they seized on an opportunity at the start of the second half which they should never have had and they’ve been clinical with it, but we’ve done more than enough to win that game of football that we should have.”
Despite the draw, Salford move up a place to 15th ahead of the visit of high flying Cheltenham Town.
