MORECAMBE boss Sammy McIlroy was full of praise for the club’s players and fans after Saturday’s dramatic win over Torquay.

The revitalised Shrimps secured their fourth win in five games in the most dramatic of circumstances with two late Laurence Wilson penalties helping his side overcome a 1-0 deficit after Billy Kee’s 78th minute goal.

McIlroy said: “It was a horrible day and really tough to get any momentum but the lads showed a huge amount of character.

“To go 1-0 down late on was a real blow but they rolled their sleeves up and battled right to the death and got their just rewards.

“Mark Duffy was a real torment for them and there was no argument with either penalty and Laurence Wilson did brilliantly to stay calm and score them both.

“It was a fantastic win in the circumstances and I couldn’t praise the players enough.

“But the fans also deserve a huge amount of credit. They really got behind us and gave us a big lift and they made a big difference and I was so pleased for them at the end.
