Tranmere 1-1 Brighton

Tranmere 1-1 Brighton

Tranmere   1 - 1   Brighton

A late goal from Scott Wootton secured a draw for Tranmere, who hit back after a poor first-half display.

Brighton deservedly took the lead through Glenn Murray's volley that bounced past Peter Gulacsi.

But Tranmere dominated the second half with Lucas Akins and John Welsh going close, while Enoch Showunmi hit a post and had a penalty appeal waved away.

Tranmere's pressure was rewarded when Aaron Cresswell's free kick was headed home by loan signing Wootton.

The result extends Brighton's unbeaten run to seven games but they will be unhappy they did not go in at half-time with a bigger lead.

Ashley Barnes blazed over from close-range and then misdirected a header when well-placed.

However, Tranmere's late goal was a deserved one as Showunmi had also had an earlier effort deflected wide, while Dale Jennings' cross flicked off the outside of the post.


Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:
"I said to the lads before the game and at half time 'we will score today'.

"This is the eighth-consecutive game we've scored in and I had a niggle in the back of my head that we would score.

"I think it shows how far we've come when we come in at the end of a game, against a team who are pulling away at the top of the league, and we're disappointed."

Brighton boss Gus Poyet told BBC Sussex:
"I think the feeling is that we lost today. We don't take this as a valuable point.

"That was probably one of the best ever chances to come to Tranmere and be three up or four up at half time.

"If you take your chances when you're on top of the game , it's over. If you don't, any team in the world is going to put pressure on you. Credit to them, but I think they were very lucky today."
