Wrexham 2-2 Tranmere Rovers

Wrexham and Tranmere Rovers battled to a stalemate in Saturday's meeting between the two National League promotion-chasing sides.

Ritchie Sutton gave Rovers the lead, stabbing home from a corner, but Wrexham hit back with two quick goals.

Scott Quigley made space for himself to swivel and score before Shaun Pearson was dragged down in the box, with Chris Holroyd converting the penalty.

Andy Cook equalised in first-half injury time with a thunderous header.

New Wrexham signing David Raven - whose paperwork was completed in time for the game - had an early introduction off the bench when James Jennings was forced off after six minutes of the game, which saw a bumper 8,471 crowd at the Racecourse Ground.

Wrexham manager Dean Keates told BBC Radio Wales: "A bit frustrated... but we'll take the positive - it's a point gained.

"We didn't start great, a bit slow, but conceding got us going and for about 15 minutes after when we got two goals.

"We broke well, we looked very accomplished and just disappointed to concede the strike just before half-time."
