Solihull Moors 0-2 Tranmere Rovers

Ollie Norburn and Andy Cook were both on target as Tranmere beat Solihull Moors 2-0 to clinch their first win in five matches.

Summer signing Norburn's second goal for Tranmere gave them a half-time lead and striker Cook registered his third of the season to make sure of the points late in the game.

Solihull centre-half Joel Kettle rescued his side in the fourth minute when he cleared Jeff Hughes' shot off the goalline after the Tranmere midfielder had skipped past two defenders.

But the visitors opened the scoring in the 19th minute. Cook squared the ball to Norburn inside the penalty area and the midfielder showed equal composure to beat home goalkeeper Nathan Vaughan.

Andy Mangan headed Mitchell Duggan's excellent cross just wide for the visitors early in the second period and Oliver Norwood forced a fingertip save from Vaughan after a fine, jinking run.

Adam Buxton and Connor Jennings combined to set up Cook for the game-clinching goal in the 82nd minute as Tranmere secured a deserved win.
