Jokull Andresson has joined Morecambe on an emergency loan after a similar spell with Exeter City earlier this season

Shrimps’ boss Derek Adams was impressed with Andresson’s performance on the night, saying afterwards: “Their goalkeeper was outstanding, what a game he had.

“Exeter were never in the game in the first half, we just took the game to them. We got into so many good areas, into that 18-yard box, and their keeper, what an outstanding game he had. He’s kept them in the match tonight.

“He’s just made a number of really good saves over the night.”
