Tranmere   3 - 1   Exeter

Tranmere 3-1 Exeter

Tranmere 3-1 Exeter

Tranmere boosted their survival hopes with victory over 10-man Exeter in what was a relegation six-pointer.

The Grecians lost a man when James Dunne was dismissed for a second bookable offence after fouling Joss Labadie in the first half.

Craig Curran headed Tranmere ahead before Labadie fired in from 30 yards to double the advantage.

Stuart Fleetwood pulled one back for Exeter before Gareth Edds slotted in from a corner to seal the win.


Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:

"We've made enough chances to win a couple of games.

"It was one of those games you dominate the game and you lose something at the end, so it was a relief to get the third goal.

"It is a relief because it would have dragged us down if we had been beaten."

Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale told BBC Radio Devon:

"We have to now concentrate on what our job is to do over the next few weeks and prepare for those games, because today's gone now and we have to move onto the next game.

"I'm not going to criticise the players, that's not my style. They gave it an enormous amount of effort for the final hour of the game with 10 men and mistakes will happen

"I have to be very careful that we don't wallow in this afternoon's result and we have to be very clear on what we have to do over the next few weeks."
