Tranmere 2-1 Huddersfield

Tranmere roared back from a goal down to win a thriller against Huddersfield Town at Prenton Park.

And it was substitutes Jason Price and Iain Hume who made the difference for the Merseysiders.

Little had gone right for them in the first half and Huddersfield went ahead in the 44th minute.

Town's loan man Scott McDonald from Southampton chested down a cross by Kenny Irons and netted with a close-range right-foot shot.

Jason Koumas, Ian Sharps and Simon Hayworth were all out of luck for Tranmere and they could easily have fallen further behind after the break.

Home skipper Kevin Gray denied McDonald with a fine saving tackle and then the Southampton man fired inches wide.

Price joined the action in the 67th minute and just four minutes later blasted home the equaliser after Town keeper Scott Bevan had beaten out a Hume effort.

The Tranmere winner came in the 77th minute. Gray volleyed home a left-footed shot from a Hume cross, much to the disappointment of Huddersfield as he left the Yorkshire club in the close season.

Mickey Mellon, Gray and Price were all given yellow cards for Tranmere along with Huddersfield duo Scott Jenkins and Eddie Youds.


Tranmere: Achterberg, Sharps, McGibbon, Gray, Allen, Navarro, Mellon, Koumas, Nicholson, Haworth, Barlow. Subs: Price, Welch, Hinds, Hume, Harrison.

Huddersfield: Bevan, Jenkins, Moses, Youds, Sharp, Mattis, Irons, Holland, Thorrington, McDonald, Stead. Subs: Senior, Scott, Schofield, Baldry, Heary.

Referee: G Salisbury (Lancashire)
