MORECAMBE made it eight games unbeaten as they enjoyed a three and easy romp at the Lawn against Forest Green Rovers.

And for once the Shrimps' ace in the pack Michael Twiss failed to get onto the scoresheet as he played second fiddle to his colleagues.

The prolific marksman had one of those days when he must have left his shooting boots back at Christie Park - but goals from Jim Bentley, Danny Carlton and Wayne Curtis ensured the trip to deepest Gloucestershire was not a wasted one.

Twiss should have put Morecambe ahead inside the first 30 seconds when he broke clear only to shoot straight at goalkeeper Dave Williams - the sort of chance he normally puts away. But the miss set the tone for the rest of his day.

Morecambe were totally dominant in the early stages as Twiss again missed a great chance to open the scoring but shot wide when, again, he should have done better.

But that dominance was rewarded after 13 minutes when Bentley followed up his own initial shot to blast home after Keiron Walmsley's corner.

Williams saved the captain's first effort but Bentley was the quickest to react to slam the rebound into the net.

The Shrimps skipper then saw a header hooked off the line, while Garry Hunter's rasping drive sailed just wide as Morecambe threatened to run riot.

But they had the occasional scare - and Adam Sollitt saved well from Stephen Reed and Jefferson Louis as Green tried to get back into the game.

However, Bentley saw another header hit the crossbar as Morecambe pushed forward in numbers.

And it was no surprise when they doubled their lead on the hour as Carlton held his nerve to shoot home following good work from Curtis.

Curtis was the driving force for Morecambe and he missed the chance to make it three when he contrived to stab the ball wide from six yards with only Williams to beat

There was more misfortune for Morecambe when Garry Thompson saw a shot cleared off the line as Green looked a beaten side.

But the Shrimps got their just reward for a powerful display deep into stoppage time when Curtis grabbed the goal his performance deserved, tapping home from six-yards from a Thompson cross.

Green had a couple of late, late chances - but shots from Louis and Matthew Gadsby were watched over the bar by Sollitt.
