Tranmere Rovers 4-0 Guiseley

Tranmere thrashed Guiseley with a second-half goal rush to extend their winning run to five games in the National League.

Larnell Cole, James Norwood and Oliver Banks all went close for the hosts in a first half that Tranmere dominated but were unable to make count.

Norwood finally got the breakthrough, weaving through and firing Tranmere into a 1-0 lead after 66 minutes, before a quickfire double took Connor Jennings to five goals in his last four games and put the result beyond doubt.

Andy Cook made it 4-0 with an opportunist strike from the edge of the box after 86 minutes as Tranmere remain sixth in the table but move just two points behind the top three.
