Sammy McIlroy's men also kept their fifth successive clean sheet as they dominated against a side who started the day in second place.

Stewart Drummond opened the scoring in the 14th minute when he volleyed home a Michael Twiss cross and individual strikes from Craig Stanley and Lawrence Wilson followed on 22 and 24 minutes.

The Cherries saw Marvin Bartley sent off for a two-footed tackle on Drummond and the Shrimps took advantage with a further two second-half strikes.

Phil Jevons made it seven from eight games with a penalty five minutes after the break and Mark Duffy rounded off a perfect afternoon in stoppage time.

You're Man Utd, For Crying Out Loud!

Defending a 0-0 draw with Cambridge on the grounds that other teams lost to lower-league opposition is not befitting of Man United. We're inclined to agree with Mailboxers...
