Going into the new League 2 season Morecambe were one of the red hot favourites to go down, mainly due to their small transfer and wage budget.
 
Morecambe went into the match at Huish Park against Yeovil Town in good form, winning 3 in a row, which included league wins over Blackpool & Portsmouth and a fantastic cup win over championship side Rotherham United.
 
The hosts Yeovil Town went into the contest with a fair record of 1 win 1 loss and 1 draw, scoring 3 goals and letting in 2. 
 
With last seasons game ending 4 - 2 to Morecambe, The Shrimps went into the match full of optimism and belief. 
 
Despite a bright start, Morecambe had their backs to the wall for much of the game and had their goalkeeper Barry Roche to thank for keeping them in the game after a couple of vital saves. The Glovers had 57% possession and 19 shots, compared to 11 shots from the visitors.
 
However, a goal from veteran striker Ken Ellison in the 55th minute, set up by the impressive Liverpool loanee Jack Dunn sealed the win for Morecambe, putting them surprisingly top of League 2 after 4 matches.
