The BOBcat Digital Big Match Report Morecambe

The Dons made it three wins in a row as the pulled a few points clear of the drop zone.

Jacko made two changes from last weekends win at Accrington with Leko returning from suspension and with goal scoring Kaikai on duty with Sierra Leone, Henry Lawrence stepped in at right wingback.

The home side started brightly with the first chance coming early on but Eisa was caught offside.

Then Leko looking to make an instant impact wriggled through the visitors defence and his half hit shot trickled into the keeper, this was to be the pattern of the first half for Dons attacks.

Morecambe were very busy with their two diminutive midfielders covering lots of ground and regularly finding space in a stretched Dons midfield.

The away keeper was worked far more than Jamie Cumming in the Don’s goal as Lewington and the ever-improving Jack Tucker dealt with things thrown at them.

The first half was littered with poor calls from the officials. Wrong decisions and lack of yellow cards were creating a problem that had the potential to spoil a vital encounter.

With both sides not looking like scoring the first half drifted into you attack then we’ll attack with the Dons being wasteful and Morecambe only reaching the 18 yard box due to Tucker and Lewi’s resolve.

The second half started like the first with the Dons having the early chances. Eisa had a header inside 60 seconds that he fluffed, a few attacks were traded with no real scoring chances.

At around the time McEachran usually pops off after his shift he started a move that would end with Leko firing the Dons ahead. His peach of a pass out to Harvie who was further forward than usual, got past the defender and his low center was side-footed into the bottom right-hand corner sending the Cowshed wild.

On sixty-five minutes Leko unleashed a pile driver that their keeper blocked, the rebound went to Eisa at such a pace and height he couldn’t finish.

The changes began to be made with both sides looking to freshen up in the remaining minutes. Grigg for the home side and Cole The Goal for the visitors. In the end Grigg had the biggest involvement with a couple of half chances and support in creation of opportunities for others.

Relief at the final whistle, a treble fist pump and a downpour. So Donsie that.

My Man of the Match went off in the final minute but to be fair Tucker was only just pipped for the award today.

A healthy return in the last few games has seen the Dons climb out of the drop zone and now be in control of their own destiny in the remaining eight games.

Staying up is certainly not guaranteed by a long shot but it wasn’t too long ago we were told by experts that we were “cast adrift”. Just shows you how much they know doesn’t it?

See the regular faces at Wycombe no doubt.
