A first-half goal from former Morecambe player Carlos Mendes Gomes was enough to give Fleetwood Town the three points in this entertaining League One derby at Highbury.

The on-loan Luton Town man scored the only goal of the game on 13 minutes after a flowing move down the right.

Shaun Rooney played in Jayden Stockley and the striker’s cross was volleyed home by Mendes Gomes from six yards out.

Morecambe almost replied immediately when Michael Mellon headed a Danny Crowley cross against the crossbar.

Mendes Gomes curled an effort just wide and Rooney saw a shot blocked on the line as Fleetwood looked to extend their lead before the break.

The second half saw Morecambe substitute Ash Hunter force Jay Lynch into a save low to his right and have a good penalty shout for a Rooney handball waved away before Harvey Macadam and Rooney wasted glorious late chances to extend Fleetwood’s lead.
