Last Updated: 28/04/18 8:08pm
Barnet's chances of Football League survival were given a massive boost with a superb late goal from Alex Nicholls giving Martin Allen's side the win they needed to keep their hopes alive.
Substitute Nicholls produced a fine strike to volley past Barry Roche from the edge of the area 10 minutes from time to see off Morecambe.
The goal came after a sustained period of Barnet pressure which saw them fully deserve the 1-0 victory, which leaves them just two points behind third-bottom Morecambe going into the final game.
The visitors controlled the second half and had it not been for Roche they could have won the game by a greater margin.
Roche produced a fine save from a Richard Brindley free-kick and went on to make another from Nicholls.
The first half was a scrappy affair with no clear-cut chances.
The best effort on goal came from Brindley when he flashed a shot just wide of the Morecambe goal from the right-hand side of the area.
Morecambe enjoyed the greater share of the possession but failed to test Craig Ross in the Barnet goal as their final ball let them down.
