Tranmere Rovers 0-1 Wrexham

Sam Wedgbury
Wrexham's Sam Wedgbury received two yellow cards in the opening 13 minutes

Chris Holroyd's 58th-minute goal gave 10-man Wrexham a fine win at Tranmere.

The Dragons played 77 minutes a man down after Sam Wedgbury was booked twice within 13 minutes.

Holroyd fired-in through a crowd of players from the edge of the penalty after a corner to shock the Prenton Park crowd.

Tranmere could not break through even in 10-minutes of added time after play was suspended for a spectator to be taken from the ground on a stretcher.

The result lifts Wrexham to fifth in the table, but leaves Micky Mellon's Tranmere languishing in 18th place.
