Tranmere   1 - 4   Leeds United

Tranmere 1-4 Leeds

Tranmere 1-4 Leeds

Leeds boosted their hopes of automatic promotion from League One with a deserved win over struggling Tranmere.

Robert Snodgrass' angled free-kick gave the visitors a ninth-minute lead.

Jermaine Beckford's 16th-minute penalty doubled Leeds' lead before John Welsh pulled one back for Tranmere three minutes later with a low drive.

But Luciano Becchio headed in a third before Beckford expertly lobbed Rovers keeper Luke Daniels to move Leeds five points clear of third-placed Charlton.


Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:

"I think the first half was our poorest performance since we've taken over.

"We had a little pop at the lads at half time and I think we were unfortunate to lose the second half to be honest.

"But the game was dead by then, it was a poor performance in the first half - just a comedy of errors."
