Gillingham's defeat meant Rovers escaped the drop in front of more than 3,000 travelling fans.

They took a well-deserved lead in the 38th minute when Ian Goodison crashed a close-range shot into the roof of the Stockport net after playing a neat one-two with Bas Savage.

Shortly before the break Joss Labadie almost made it two when his 30-yard drive was superbly beaten away by Stockport keeper Lloyd Rigby.

It was 2-0 in the 53rd minute when Zoumana Bakayogo crossed from the left and former Stockport striker Ian Thomas-Moore volleyed in from eight yards.

Tranmere wrapped up the win in the 76th minute when Labadie tapped home after Rigby spilled a shot from Savage.

What Is It That FIFA Actually Do?

That's the question raised timidly by someone sat at the back of the room, whilst others remind that UEFA aren't perfect either. Plus a few more gone on to better XIs...

Time To Step Up, Mr Platini...

UEFA should step up and extend the Euros to replace FIFA's tarnished World Cup, say a couple of mailboxers. Also: all hail Carlo, King of the Kop, and plenty more Budget XIs...
