Tranmere Rovers 9-0 Solihull Moors

Cole Stockton and Connor Jennings each scored a hat-trick as Tranmere stayed on track for promotion from the National League with an incredible 9-0 win over Solihull Moors.

Five victories in a row had seen Rovers keep pace with Lincoln and they had all but secured a sixth at the break courtesy of Stockton's first-half hat-trick.

Stockton headed home James Norwood's corner to put Tranmere ahead in the 20th minute before doubling the home side's lead five minutes later with a powerful finish.

The striker missed a glorious chance to complete his treble when Danny Lewis saved his penalty but he did score a third in the final minute of the half when he finished Liam Ridehalgh's cross at the back post.

Jennings got in on the act in the 48th minute with a driven shot into the bottom corner and made it five two minutes later by heading in Jeff Hughes' corner.

Andy Cook nodded home on 68 minutes and Ridehalgh appeared to complete the scoring when he curled a free-kick into the top corner five minutes from time.

But Tranmere were not done yet as Jennings found the top corner with the outside of his boot and debutant Aaron Collins fired home in stoppage time to round off a nightmare afternoon for the visitors, who are now just three points above the drop zone.
