The Shrimps had a golden opportunity to take the lead when Argyle trialist Bryan Spring was adjudged to have brought down debutant Ian Craney in the penalty area after 21 minutes, only for the midfielder to see his spot-kick saved smartly by Lloyd Saxton. Sawyer was one of three substitutes introduced by Paul Sturrock at half-time and the defender made an impact just 10 minutes later when he fired home a rasping drive 20 yards. Paterson secured the outcome with 15 minutes remaining thanks to a measured finish from the edge of the penalty area.
