Tranmere 0-2 Swindon

Swindon ended a disappointing season with a comfortable victory at Tranmere.

The away side took the lead with their first chance of the game when Jean-Francois Lecsinel netted from close range following a Michael Rose corner.

Tranmere should have equalised soon after, but Dale Jennings missed an open goal after goalkeeper Phil Smith saved from Lucas Akins.

And Michael Timlin doubled the bottom side's lead before the break with a fine 25-yard strike after a clearance.

However, The Robins still finish bottom of the League One table, while the defeat means Tranmere end their campaign in 18th place.

POST-MATCH REACTION

Tranmere manager Les Parry tells BBC Radio Merseyside:

"The bottom line is that we weren't at the races.

"I think we take the positives from the last couple of months and I had a word with the lads about the game, but I said they've been magnificent for us this season.

"I don't want to give them an excuse about it being the last game of the season, but it's happened now and we've got to take the positives and kick forward next season."

Swindon caretaker-manager Paul Bodin told BBC Wiltshire:

"They were fresh, they were sharp and I thought we thoroughly deserved the win.

"I wanted to freshen it up, try and get as many kids on as we possibly could.

"It's been a tough season for everybody but I was in charge for two games and I've got a 50% win record so that can't be too bad."
