Tranmere   0 - 3   Brentford

Tranmere 0-3 Brentford

Tranmere 0-3 Brentford

Tranmere replaced Brentford at the bottom of League One after the Bees cruised to victory at Prenton Park.

Brentford took the lead when midfielder Kevin O'Connor slotted home a penalty after Aaron Cresswell handled a Craig Woodman cross.

O'Connor got his second with a 35-yard free-kick, which flew through a crowd of players and inside the far post.

The win was completed by midfielder Marcus Bean, who struck home a Charlie MacDonald cross.


Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:
"It was a massively disappointing afternoon as these are the games we've got to win.

"To be fair to Brentford they took their chances today and they were worthy winners.

"We've got to look forward to the Walsall game, that is a winnable game for us even after that performance."

Brentford boss Andy Scott told BBC London 94.9:
"The spotlight was on us after last week but the response of everyone at the club was magnificent"

"We felt to come here and impose ourselves I needed to make some changes and the lads that came in had a point to prove"

"We have been organised and resolute and chased lost causes and could have scored more so I am really satisfied."
