Cameroon’s Yann Songo’o was a key figure as his English League 2 side Morecambe defeated Barrow in a matchday 30 clash and taking the team back into the play-off spots.
The Shrimps succeeded in doing the double over Barrow. The victory for Yann Songo’o and his Morecambe side moved the team to fourth in the table.
Kelvin Mellor’s 66mins strike was enough to earn Morecambe all three points. The Shrimps were coming off from a defeat against Brentford on Tuesday and Coach Derek Adams selected the side team against Barrow.
Morecambe opened the scoring through a well-worked goal. Aaron Wildig scored from a close-range header at the 24mins from a Cole Stockton cross at the far post.
A cross from the left wing was cleared by Liam Gibson straight to the path of Scott Quigley who made no mistake in slotting it into the back of the net for Barrow’s equalizer.
The Shrimps sealed the victory with Kelvin Mellor’s 66mins goal. The victory takes the side to 4th with 46 points.
Yann Songo’o is the son of former Cameroonian national team goalkeeper Jacques Songo’o. The former who signed for Morecambe this football season after leaving Scunthorpe United have played some 20 games in all competition for the team. He has succeeded in scoring two goals.
Songo’o may miss a handful of games for his side after the FA charged him of allegedly making a homophobic comment (on referee Paul Howard) during their defeat by Tranmere on January 30. The player has until February 24 to respond to the FA charge.
The 29-year-old who was charged with an “aggravated breach” of E3 “because the language included a reference to sexual orientation” is reported to face a possible six to twelve game ban.
Yann Songo’o is likely to feature for Morecambe when they next take to the field on Tuesday. Morecambe will face Salford City, in what could be Songo’o last game for the squad in a long time if he is banned.
