Big Match Review - Tranmere 1 Plymouth 0

Tranmere Rovers 1-0 Plymouth Argyle
Saturday November 13, Prenton Park, (Att: 4,840)

A great individual goal from Tranmere's Daniel Jennings was enough to secure all three points for the home side as they moved out of League One's bottom four.

The visitors has the first opportunity when quick play released Bradley Wright-Phillips but he saw Rovers 'keeper Peter Gulacsi save his low shot.

Les Parry's men then almost took the lead themselves, with Ian Thomas-Moore's lob narrowly going over the bar.

When the deciding goal did come on the hour mark, however, it was in spectacular style.

Jennings picked up the ball just inside the Argyle half and set about a mazy run which saw him beat five Pilgrims players before slotting the ball past Roman Larrieu and into the bottom corner.

Peter Reid's side pressured for an equaliser and came close when Reda Johnson's header was cleared off the line as the hosts defended desperately to hold onto their advantage.

The win sees Tranmere move level on points with Argyle just outside the relegation zone with both sides still firmly under pressure.
