Tranmere Rovers 1-0 Peterborough United

Tranmere 1-0 Peterborough

Tranmere   1 - 0   Peterborough

Tranmere recorded their first league win of the season against Peterborough thanks to Arnaud Mendy's first goal in English football.

With half-time approaching, the French midfielder sidefooted home after good work by Ryan Fraughan to set him up.

Tranmere could have made the finale easier but Ian Goodison's effort from just inside the box looped wide.

And Peterborough could have rescued a point but substitute Grant McCann fired a free-kick over.


Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:
"[The first win of the season] is massive and it's always going to be massive. You get fed up of hearing on the radio and reading it in the papers that we haven't won at home.

"We've got three or four players that we're still getting up to speed.

"Once they have played four or five games, I think the tempo at which we're able to play will be even greater."

Peterborough United boss Gary Johnson told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire:
"Sometimes you have to give credit to the two centre-halves that headed and kicked everything.

"They were uncompromising on the day, they just sat in their hole and then they had people getting back in to help them.

"We showed a little bit of quality but it was just getting that little run of the ball in the second half to allow us to get in."
