Eastleigh 0-2 Tranmere Rovers

Tranmere extended Eastleigh's winless run to six National League games with victory at Ten Acres.

The visitors looked the most likely during a tense first half.

Lois Maynard, Lee Vaughan and James Norwood all went close, but only the latter forced a save out of Eastleigh goalkeeper Graham Stack.

Michael Ihiekwe headed onto a post as Tranmere turned up the heat at the start of the second half.

And Ben Tollitt put the visitors in front with a fine finish on the hour-mark, drilling a low shot under Stack, before turning provider as Norwood made it 2-0 with four minutes remaining.
