Walsall v Tranmere

Walsall 0-1 Tranmere

Walsall   0 - 1   Tranmere

Ian Goodison's first-half strike was enough to secure Tranmere's place in the Carling Cup second round at the expense of Walsall.

Goodison latched onto Joss Labadie's header across the face of the Saddlers goal to finish from close range.

The home side were undone by poor finishing from Steve Jones, Julian Gray and Alex Nicholls.

Nick Wood should have extended Tranmere's lead but his close-range header went over the bar.


Tranmere manager Les Parry told BBC Radio Merseyside:

"We said before the game, all of the lads had something to prove after Saturday's performance. I'm sure they all felt they could do better and I think to a man, every one of them did better.

"I would have liked it if we weren't hanging on in the last few minutes but I would have taken that before the game, so I'm quite happy."
