Goals from Ryan Williams and Tony Diagne sealed the points for the Shrimps, who climbed up to fourth place in League Two, and piled more pressure on under-fire Bury boss Kevin Blackwell and his struggling side.

Tom Soares went close early on, his deflected shot rebounding off a post, while Padraig Amond was denied at the opposite end by Brian Jensen.

Andy Procter got into some good positions for Bury, side-footing wide on one occasion and seeing Barry Roche tip a goalbound header over the bar.

The Shakers enjoyed another good chance early in the second half but Roche was equal to a powerful shot from Anton Forrester.

Having created little of note, Morecambe took the lead in stunning fashion when Williams curled home a superb free-kick from 30 yards, Jensen unable to keep it out despite getting a hand to it.

Procter nodded inches wide of a post from a Shaun Beeley cross but Morecambe wrapped up victory in injury time when Diagne rifled home from a tight angle, extending the club's unbeaten run to eight games.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
