Solihull Moors 0-3 Tranmere Rovers

Tranmere moved up to fourth in the National League after they beat Solihull at the Automated Technology Group Stadium.

Solihull goalkeeper Dan Lewis did well to hold Tranmere at bay for the first 20 minutes, twice denying Lois Maynard from close range and comfortably gathering Lee Vaughan's venomous half-volley in the 19th minute.

The former Kidderminster keeper was finally thwarted in controversial fashion in the 25th minute as Jake Kirby rounded him to finish into an empty net. The assistant referee appeared to raise his flag for offside, but the referee waved play on and the goal stood.

Kirby added gloss to the scoreline with eight minutes remaining, tapping home on the rebound after Maynard's shot was saved, and James Norwood added a third in stoppage time.
