Watch: Irish Goalkeeper Scores Dramatic Last Minute Equaliser - Everyone's Loving It
By Gary Reilly Updated

Morecambe are sitting solidly in mid-table in League 2. They're not going to be relegated and it would take an awful lot for them to make the play-offs. In short, an extra point is probably not going to make a massive difference to their season.

Nonetheless, when it's the last minute, you're 1-0 down at home and your side have corner, there's always a good argument for sending up the keeper. Usually it makes feck all difference, but usually it's not big Barry Roche that that the opposition defence have to deal with.

Having almost beaten Portsmouth's on loan Liverpool keeper Ryan Fulton earlier in the game, the Dubliner decided he'd had enough of Morecambe's limp attack and went up for a corner in the 94th minute, rising well above the Pompey defence to head home and promptly celebrating like a man who has scored his first goal in almost 500 career games.

It's fair to say Morecambe fans were quite enjoying seeing the 33 year old head home.

We spoke to Barry on our daily sports Podcast The Racket, today. Listen below:
