Tranmere Rovers 1-2 Exeter City

Jordan Moore-Taylor's superb second-half header was enough to earn Exeter City a 2-1 victory at Tranmere Rovers.

The visitors took a sixth-minute lead when David Wheeler's lob was only palmed goalwards by Owain Fon Williams for Graham Cummins to head home.

Danny Holmes' deflected shot found the bottom corner from the edge of the box to pull Rovers level on 25 minutes

But the visitors won it when Moore-Taylor's 69th-minute diving header went in off the underside of the crossbar.
