Evans left aghast as Ex-miller steals win
MORECAMBE ....2 ROTHERHAM ......1
free-kick into the bottom corner on 56 minutes.
The Millers equalised seven minutes later when Revell deflected Lionel Ainsworth’s shot beyond a stranded Barry Roche.
The visitors were reduced to ten men for the last 19 minutes, however, when Mullins brought Andrew Wright down with the Shrimps’ striker looking to get in behind the defence.
And Morecambe took full advantage of the extra man when Ellison rose highest to head substitute Lewis Alessandra’s cross into the top corner in the last minute, to boss Jim Bentley's delight.
“We’ve pinched a winner at the end in great circumstances,” he said.
“Kev, against his old club in injury time, and when it left his head there’s the moment of silence – that’s what you get involved in football for.
“It’s always nice to win a game of football and that sets us up nicely now.
“We’ve been on poor form recently so it's important to get back to winning ways. As far as I’m concerned there are three cup finals coming up and I want to get nine points out of them and finish the season as strongly as possible.
“I’ve asked for a response and they’ve certainly given us that. They’ve stood up and been counted.”
