Tranmere   0 - 1   Wolverhampton

Terry Gornell and Michael Mancienne
There was little to choose between Tranmere and Wolves

Matt Jarvis' second-half strike sent Wolves into the fourth round of the FA Cup at the expense of Tranmere Rovers.

Rovers started well and Ian Thomas-Moore was unlucky to see his header cleared off the line by Stephen Ward.

Sylvan Ebanks-Blake had his close-range header well saved by Luke Daniels while Terry Gornell missed a open goal for Tranmere, as did Jarvis for Wolves.

With the tie heading for a replay, Nenad Milijas played in Jarvis who fired home from just inside the box.

Wolves keeper Wayne Hennessey was the busier of the two keepers throughout the first half with the Welshman called into action as early as the fourth minute with a routine save from Gareth Edds.

606: DEBATE

Having been tested again by Edds from 20-yards on the half hour, Hennessey pulled off a superb fingertip save from John Welsh's half-volley on the edge of the area.

From the resulting corner Moore had his close-range header cleared off the line by Ward.

Minutes later Wolves could have taken the lead but having latched onto Chris Iwelumo's flick on, Jarvis inexplicably fired his shot wide from six-yards out.

After the break Ebanks-Blake's close-range header from a Milijas cross was superbly kept out by Daniels with a one-handed reflex save.

Gornell should have put the hosts 1-0 up shortly after the hour mark, but having beaten Hennessy to a flick on he fired into the side netting with just one defender on the line and the goal gaping.

But Jarvis broke the deadlock late on after collecting Milijas's defence-splitting pass and beating Daniels with an emphatic finish from just inside the area.

Late on Craig Curran had a golden opportunity to level but his close range flick was well blocked by the impressive Hennessey.


Tranmere manager Les Parry:

"I thought the lads performed magnificently.

"In the first half we had the majority of the play but they probably created the best chance and [Jarvis] should probably have done better.

"In the second half they had the majority of the play but we created the best chance. I think we deserved something out of the game over the 90 minutes.

"That's two weeks on the bounce we've missed an open goal but the lads don't do it on purpose.

"It is just unfortunate it went the wrong side of the post - it would have been interesting had we scored at that point."

Wolves manager Mick McCarthy:
"I'm very pleased we're into the next round and we've got Palace at home.

"It is the third round the FA Cup - where people find that extra bit I don't know but I bet that is the best they have played in a long time.

"We needed a win. I don't know what winning will do for confidence but I know what losing would have done for it - it would have had a real adverse effect.

"I thought first half we were evenly matched but second half we were the dominant force and for long periods we were camped in their half - deserved winners I think."
