Tranmere share the spoils with Brentford in League One draw
Jean-Lousi Akpa Akpro celebrates scoring for Tranmere Rovers v Brentford at Prenton Park with Andy Robinson on Saturday afternoon.
A BRENTFORD goal five minutes into injury time saw Tranmere Rovers having to share the spoils at Prenton Park on Saturday.
The match was as close as Rovers boss Ronnie Moore had predicted in his pre-match press talk, but Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro's second half strike looked to have given Tranmere all three points.
However, a 96th-minute equaliser from Jonathan Douglas sent the Bees home with a share of the points.
The result means the Wirral side are still unbeaten in the league so far this season and top the table with 21 points.
Moore had named an unchanged team for Saturday’s game following the 5-2 win over Crawley Town a week earlier.
Adam McGurk returned from injury to take the place of Jake Kirby on the substitutes' bench.
Moore said: “Although it ended a draw, it actually felt like a defeat. “But if someone had said to us we’d be nine games done with 21 points and top of the league we’d have thought they were crackers. There’s still an awful lot to play for.
“I thought the lads performed quite well in the first half and there was a little spell in the second when we had them under the cosh.
“But we haven’t lost in a month.
“To be top of the league at this stage is like dreamland. The lads deserve all the credit that they get.” Rovers’ League One campaign continues with an away game against Scunthorpe tomorrow night. They are away again this Saturday against second-placed Notts County.
