Last Time We Met Tranmere Rovers

18 February 2019

Port Vale host mid-table Tranmere Rovers this Tuesday night in Sky Bet League Two action, but can you remember what happened last time the two sides met?

Port Vale headed to Prenton Park in August 2018 without an away win in 14 attempts, whilst Tranmere were looking to strengthen their position in a league campaign they had started strongly.

James Norwood's late second-half strike earned the hosts the spoils as both sides played out a tightly contested affair with minimal chances.

Ollie Banks had a stinging shot from outside the box comfortably saved by Scott Brown, before Connor Jennings couldn't keep his effort from the edge of the box from straying wide.

With their first clear-cut attempt of the game, Leon Legge headed just high of the crossbar from a Luke Hannat corner before the Vale back-line endured wave after wave of pressure

As the clock ticked down, it looked as if the resilient Vale would grind out a result, however, Norwood struck with just 13 minutes to play to win the game.

A cross-cum-shot from Banks found it's way into the path of Norwood, and despite having his first attempt saved, the in-form forward was on-hand to tap home the rebound.

The result left Vale sitting in 15th place whilst Tranmere climbed the table to 10th.
