Tranmere   1 - 0   Colchester

Enoch Showunmi handed Tranmere their first win in eight games at the expense of Colchester.

The visitors started well as home keeper Tony Warner was forced into a sharp save by Anthony Wordsworth.

Andy Robinson shot just over the bar as Rovers pushed after the break but he soon turned provider when he set Showunmi free to fire in the winner.

The U's saw Steven Gillespie waste a great headed chance and Andrew Bond's effort cleared off the line.


Colchester United manager John Ward told BBC Essex:
"I thought the effort and performance warranted more than that something from the game.

"In terms of what the boys are trained to do, we saw the boys tried to turn the game round after we went a goal down.

"The supporters I feel for because they have been around and they deserved to see more from the game."

Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:
"I thought the quality going into the box, especially from Aaron Cresswell, was just magnificent and strikers have got to get on the end of those balls.

"But in the second-half we stuck to our task and we had a few tremendous performances out there.

"It's no secret Enoch Showunmi's strength is running at centre-halves towards goal and that's about the fifth or sixth goal he's scored like that this season."
