Tranmere Rovers 3-1 Woking

Tranmere moved up to fourth place in the National League after an exciting win over Woking.

Rovers' Andy Cook took down a long ball by Lois Maynard before beating Michael Poke to open the scoring, before the same combination saw Cook double his and Tranmere's tally.

The two sides exchanged goals in the second half as Fabio Saraiva registered for Woking from distance, but James Norwood flicked in Ritchie Sutton's excellent ball with his head for Rovers' third.

Woking's Keiran Murtagh missed a chance to make things interesting when his penalty was saved by Scott Davies, before Joey Jones gave away a penalty at the other end as he upended Mitch Duggan.

Jones was sent off for the challenge, but Norwood failed to convert his spot-kick.
