Rovers held by Yeovil Town as MK Dons move up


Tranmere were forced to settle for a point at Yeovil Town yesterday on a day in which many of the leading teams dropped points.

In what was a relatively drab game, it was a typically neutral atmosphere at Huish Park. The first effort of the game went to Connor Jennings who pulled his shot wide from the edge of the box.

Yeovil had a couple of fine chances themselves but couldn’t put any of them away, and it was Tranmere would would squander the best opportunity of the game.

Jennings slipped a lovely through ball for Norwood in the sixth minute of stoppage time. With only the keeper to beat, Norwood somehow seemed to roll the ball tamely at the keeper – it almost could have been a scuff it was that light. 

Despite that, it was another point and another clean sheet for Micky Mellon’s men. 

Elsewhere, Lincoln and Exeter both drew while Newport were thrashed 4-1 at Crawley.

MK Dons took advantage in the fact that none of the top four won and moved up in to third place courtesy of a 1-0 win against Northampton.

Rovers are next in action on Tuesday when they make the long trip to Forest Green. FGR are currently 9th, three points behind Tranmere.
