Late Gregg Wylde leveller earns Morecambe a point against Forest Green

A last-gasp goal from Gregg Wylde earned Morecambe a share of the spoils against Forest Green.
Wylde, making his home debut after joining on loan from Plymouth, scored with a sweet left-footed shot in the 90th minute to make it 1-1.
Forest Green took the lead in the 13th minute through a long-range Chris Clements effort. The on-loan midfielder picked up the ball 25 yards out and took advantage of the space to fire a superb shot into the corner of Dan Nizic's goal.
Morecambe went close to levelling from two corners. Sam Lavelle headed against the top of the bar in the 26th minute and in the closing stages of the first half, Steven Old's close-range effort was well saved by Bradley Collins with Dean Winnard going close to tucking home the loose ball from close range.
The Shrimps' goal threat continued at the start of the second half, with visiting goalkeeper Bradley Collins grateful to Gavin Gunning for a late tackle to stop Kevin Ellison from taking advantage of his fumble as he looked set to score from close range.
Wylde then saw a shot deflected into the side netting before Aaron McGowan was booked for a dive in the box while his Morecambe team-mates claimed a penalty.
Old and Winnard went close from Michael Rose corners before Jim Bentley's side had the final say with Wylde's superb strike.
