The home side broke the deadlock after 33 minutes when Steve Howard latched onto a Matt Oakley cross to tap the ball into an empty net from close range.

Nigel Pearson's troops continued to press forward with the impressive Howard once again seeing a left-footed drive tipped around the post by goalkeeper Danny Coyne.

Just after the interval, the hosts doubled their advantage as Matt Fryatt latched onto a Max-Alain Gradel free-kick just outside the area and guided a superb header beyond the outreaching arms of Coyne.

A double substitution on the hour mark gave some hope to Ronnie Moore's men and when Chris Greenacre found himself in space down the right he steered an inch-perfect cross for Chris Shuker to hit a right-foot shot home on 80 minutes.

But Tranmere's late pressure was undone when, with the last action of the game, Fryatt again rose well to head home from six yards.

Probably. But presumably he would not swap one bench for another. We have mails on over-hyped players, Arsenal enthusiasm, UEFA, FIFA and naked dudes...
