Doyle – on his full se­nior de­but – re­ceived his march­ing or­ders for pulling back El­liot Benyon in the 23rd minute, be­fore Shrimps goal­keeper Barry Roche air­kicked Drum­mond’s back-pass and watched it roll into the net.

The Gulls made sure of the points with Yeo­man slot­ting into the bot­tom cor­ner, and More­cambe boss Jim Bent­ley ad­mit­ted his play­ers were al­ways go­ing to strug­gle af­ter the two first-half mis­takes.

“The chang­ing point was the early send­ing off. It was al­ways go­ing to be a bat­tle against a team that is fight­ing for their lives,” he said.

“We had a go and we worked hard – the play­ers have cer­tainly given it their all.

“If we had had a lit­tle bit of luck or a penalty de­ci­sion then we might have got our­selves back on level terms.

“Those mis­takes hap­pen and I think Roche is one of the best goal­keep­ers in the busi­ness at back-passes.

“We built mo­men­tum in the sec­ond-half and cre­ated chances, but they hit us on the break­away.”
