Portsmouth 3-2 Tranmere Rovers

Ryan Taylor
Taylor has scored six goals so far this season.

Ryan Taylor's late brace helped Portsmouth come back from 2-0 down to claim a dramatic three points over struggling Tranmere.

The visitors looked comfortable as strikes from Jennison Myrie-Williams and Kayode Odejayi put them ahead.

Substitute Craig Westcarr gave Pompey a glimmer of hope which proved to be the impetus to their impending fightback.

Taylor levelled from close range before pouncing to nod home Dan Butler's corner five minutes from time.
