Tranmere   3 - 0   Sheff Wed

Tranmere v Sheff Wed

Tranmere 3-0 Sheffield Wed

Sheffield Wednesday's winless run stretched to nine games as Tranmere picked up a comfortable victory.

A disastrous five-minute spell saw the Owls reduced to 10 men and concede two goals - Lateef Elford-Alliyu headed in the first from John Welsh's cross.

Welsh was then brought down by Giles Coke, who saw a straight red card, before Ian Goodison headed in from Aaron Creswell's resulting free-kick.

Enoch Showunmi wrapped it up with a neatly-taken left-footed goal.


Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:

"I was more nervous at the end about keeping a clean sheet than I was of winning the game, as with 10 minutes to go we were 3-0 up.

"It was a little disappointing on Saturday when we conceded so late against Plymouth, so tonight was great - I love clean sheets.

"You can see Enoch Showunmi has a spring in his step now and when he hasn't been scoring he's been running the show for us up top."

Sheffield Wednesday manager Gary Megson told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"I thought for an hour we were on top, we were the best side without playing champagne football.

"You need to score when you are on top, we haven't created a huge amount, but we had one or two corners that have caused them problems that I felt we should have scored from.

"Their first goal comes from what I would view as neglect. All that one of our players had to do was drop on the toes of the player who received the ball from the throw in, force the ball backwards and then the quality of the cross wouldn't be as good as it was."
