The Magpies were on course to leave with just their second point in six games when Alan Sheehan made it 2-2 just after the hour but Jennings lashed home the winner in the 84th minute.

Ronan Murray put County 1-0 ahead in the 14th minute before two quick goals from Ryan Lowe and Jason Koumas gave Rovers the lead and Sheehan missed from the spot - all before half time.

The visitors drew first blood when Tranmere failed to clear a Sheehan corner and Murray fired low past Owain fon Williams but Rovers were not behind for long.

Koumas fired home a great strike from 20 yards in the 25th minute before Lowe hit a Liam Ridehalgh cross into the roof of the net three minutes later.

Gary Liddle was body checked by Ash Taylor in the box moments later but Sheehan saw his spot-kick saved by the legs of fon Williams.

Sheehan made amends though, equalising with a superb 30-yard free-kick, but Jennings denied the Magpies a point with a fine strike from distance at the death.

Is Anybody Still Saying 'Wenger In'?

Even the most sensible and loyal Wenger apologists are now saying that he should leave the club. We also have lots more on Brendan Rodgers and a Chelsea plea...
