Yeovil   3 - 1   Tranmere

Yeovil 3-1 Tranmere

Yeovil 3-1 Tranmere

Yeovil Town catapulted out of the League One bottom four as they scored three times inside the first half hour to bury Tranmere Rovers at Huish Park.

The Glovers had scored just three times in their first five league games.

But they were two up in 10 minutes when Dean Bowditch's opener was followed by Andrew Welsh's close-range header.

Paul Huntington then fired a third into the top right corner on 27 minutes, Rovers not replying until the last minute from Ian Thomas-Moore's penalty.

Nathan Smith gave away the spot-kick after fouling sub Lucas Akins.


Yeovil manager Terry Skiverton told BBC Somerset:

"That was as good as we've been (this year), we defended well as a team today and that was the most important thing.

"For me if we had that solidity in our shape defensively, we could always hurt them on the break.

"In my eyes that's the strongest team, and strongest squad, I've been able to pick from since taking over as manager of this football club."

Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:
"We could have come in at half-time five-nil down. That wouldn't have flattered them.

"We didn't deserve to win the game, I'm not trying to kid myself that we did. But we had a few chances to score before we actually did and after we scored.

"Had we scored earlier and maybe nicked another one, you never know. But we weren't able to capitalise and they deservedly won."
