Tranmere   2 - 0   Southampton

Highlights - Tranmere 2-0 Southampton

Tranmere 2-0 Southampton

A stunning strike from Dale Jennings helped Tranmere secure a vital three points against Southampton.

John Welsh put the home side ahead after a mix-up between Saints goalkeeper Kelvin Davies and Jose Fonte allowed Welsh to score from six yards.

Jennings extended their lead on the hour with a curling shot from 30 yards that caught Davies off his line.

Southampton dominated the closing stages but Tranmere held on to move two points clear of the relegation zone.


Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:
"Dale Jennings was having one of those days where nothing was coming off for him and he was working really hard.

"I'm made up he got the goal because that will give him a bit of a lift and what a great finish it was.

"That's as well as we've played against an excellent Southampton side."

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins told BBC Radio Solent:
"We were second best all around the pitch, it was totally unacceptable.

"We cannot go and concede the goals we have done and expect to achieve what we want to achieve.

"Jason (Puncheon's) head has not been right...he was due to travel with us but he was not in the right frame of mind.
