Tranmere Rovers 1-1 Hartlepool United

League Two strugglers Tranmere and Hartlepool shared a point on Pools boss Ronnie Moore's return to Prenton Park.

Kayode Odejayi opened the scoring for the hosts, steering a volley past Scott Flinders from Rory Donnelly's cross.

The lead lasted just two minutes as Scott Fenwick reacted quickest to the rebound after Owain Fon Williams saved well from Michael Woods' effort.

Matthew Bates fired wide from the edge of the area as bottom side Hartlepool failed to find a valuable winner.
