Chances were rare in a low-quality match affected by the swirling wind, while both goalkeeper were also well protected by the defences.

Marc Laird had the best chance to break the deadlock when he headed over from close range early in the second half while Morecambe’s best effort fell to Jack Redshaw but his volley was straight at goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams.

The first half was a dour affair. The best opportunity came in injury time when Kevin Ellison latched on to a long ball but saw his lob fall the wrong side of the right-hand post.

Shortly afterwards, Alan Goodall saw a shot from the edge of the box deflected just over the crossbar.

Jamie Devitt curled a free-kick inches over before Tranmere striker Cole Stockton fired two long-range efforts wide of the target.

Stockton went close again late in the game after Ellison had missed his kick after being set up by Redshaw.

The Shrimps broke the deadlock just after the half hour when Lewis Alessandra scored a stunning goal as he curled an effort from the left-hand side of the box that beat Ross Atkins and went in off the bottom of the left-hand post.

That lead lasted just seven minutes as Burton equalised with a huge slice of luck. Billy Kee’s free-kick looked set to be going wide but Nick Fenton could only manage to divert the ball into his own goal.

From there, Barry Roche was forced into another good save from a Calvin Zola effort and the half ended with Jason Price testing Atkins as the Burton goalkeeper did well to claw an effort away for a corner.

Burton completed their turnaround in the 53rd minute when they took the lead through the ever-dangerous Zola. Chris Palmer floated in a free-kick from the right, the ball was headed back across goal and Zola was on hand to bundle the ball over the line from close range.

The Shrimps hit back strongly and Gary McDonald secured them a well-earned point with a fine goal after 68 minutes. The midfielder collected the ball 25 yards out and let fly with a low drive that beat Atkins to his right-hand side.
