Tranmere Rovers 2-2 Boreham Wood

Andy Mangan rescued Tranmere from a home defeat to Boreham Wood by grabbing a last-gasp equaliser in a draw at Prenton Park.

Mitch Duggan tested visiting goalkeeper Grant Smith early on, with James Norwood blasting over before the break, but the Wood - chasing four straight wins - took control in the second half.

Scott Davies' foul on Bruno Andrade allowed the Portuguese midfielder to score from the penalty spot in the 53rd minute and Angelo Balanta put Luke Garrard's men well clear with a curler after 69 minutes.

Tranmere tightened their lines and began to grow in confidence heading into the final exchanges, with Andy Cook halving the deficit in the last 10 minutes thanks to a cross from Liam Ridehalgh.

As full-time approached, Mangan was well placed to steer in a ball laid across the six-yard box.
