Morecambe's poor recent away record continued as they slipped to defeat at local rivals Fleetwood on Boxing Day.

David Ball's well-directed header on 69 minutes was enough to bring Cod Army boss Graham Alexander his first win in charge and leave Jim Bentley's side six League 2 games on the road without a win.

In a game that perhaps wasn't the Christmas cracker many were hoping for, Ball's goal capped a much-improved second half from both sides as Fleetwood completed the double over The Shrimps.
