Tranmere 2-0 Crawley Town

Zoumana Bakayogo - Tranmere v Crawley

Tranmere stayed top of League One with first-half goals from David Amoo and Zoumana Bakayogo sealing a comfortable victory over Crawley.

Amoo opened the scoring just before the half-hour with a close-range header.

Bakayogo doubled Tranmere's lead with his looping cross hitting the post and rebounding in off keeper Paul Jones.

Crawley pushed to pull a goal back and Josh Simpson went close but his effort was turned behind by Rovers keeper Owain Fon Williams.


Crawley Town manager Richie Barker told BBC Sussex:

"We want to keep competing at this level, so we need to improve.

"Both goals were avoidable, we are not going to disrespect Tranmere, but when you've come and matched a team at the top of the league, it feels we're not a million miles away.

"We can't keep mentioning possession if we're not going to win matches.

"We need to ask a few more questions of the opposition back four at times."
