After a shaky start to the game, Rovers maintained their 100% record under new manager Mark McGhee, recording the third win of his three games at the helm. McGhee admitted he made a mistake in starting with a 4-3-3 formation, and brought on Eliot Richards for Joe Anyinsah after 33 minutes to re-shape the side. Anyinsah said that he was fuming at the time for being taken off so early, but he was quick to get over it.

After a goalless first half, goals from Lee Brown and Scott McGleish after the break gave Rovers a 2–0 advantage after 75 minutes. Despite a spirited fightback by Morecambe, who pulled a goal back thanks to substitute Kevin Ellison, Rovers held on to take all three points.

The game also so the return to The Mem of former Rovers goalkeeper Lee Jones, who was named among The Shrimps' substitutes.
