Tranmere Rovers 1-0 North Ferriby United

A stoppage-time strike from Andy Cook was enough to clinch a 1-0 win for play-off chasing Tranmere against bottom-placed North Ferriby.

Cook struck three minutes into added time and there was still time for his team-mate James Norwood to be sent off before full-time.

There was little action in the first half, but Rovers stepped up the pressure after the break, with Jeff Hughes and Norwood at the heart of the action.

The pair combined in the 63rd minute, Norwood heading Hughes' corner against the post.

Tranmere won it in dramatic fashion as Cook found the net before Norwood was shown a straight red card after a clash with North Ferriby goalkeeper Rory Watson.
