2 March 2019 : Yeovil 3 Morecambe 2 : Match Statistics
Yeovil Town edged a thrilling match against relegation rivals Morecambe on Saturday afternoon, as a 3-2 victory significantly increased their chances of avoiding the drop. The match was won by a superb Ryan Seager 87th minute drive that came off the underside of the crossbar that was judged to have crossed the line, to pull his side six points clear of the bottom two. Before that, Morecambe had opened the scoring through a Richie Bennett header, but Yeovil came back as Norwich City loanee Tristan Abrahams scored a quickfire double around the hour mark to turn the game on its head. The Lancashire side appeared to have grabbed a point after Steven Old equalised with seven minutes left, but Seager had the last laugh, with the finale to the match seeing ten minutes of unsignalled injury time played by erratic referee Antony Coggins.
