Rovers' unbeaten home run continues with victory over Yeovil Town
ROVERS defender Danny Holmes helped his side extend their unbeaten home run to 18 games with an incredible comeback victory over Yeovil Town.
The 3-2 result took Tranmere seven points clear at the top of League One with 12 games completed.
It was very nearly 1-0 to Tranmere in the opening minute, but the visitors took the lead on eight minutes, and before the half had ended Rovers found themselves two goals down.
But captain James Wallace had pulled one back just before the break giving the squad a vital lift. Jake Cassidy equalised early in the second-half and Danny Holmes completed the comeback, scoring the winning goal.
Danny said: “When I score it’s a bit weird for me as a defender. But I’ve always wanted to score here and sharing it with the fans was a great feeling.
We came from behind against Preston last year and we feel we can do it against anyone now.
“We’ve got a good bunch of lads here and we just want to keep the run going. We’ve got that faith now and long may it continue.
“We can beat anyone on our day and I just want the games to come thick and fast now. “We can’t get too far ahead of ourselves, that’s when you fall back a bit.
“We’ll just take each game as it comes and try to rack-up the wins.”
Rovers are in League One action this weekend when they travel to AFC Bournemouth. Kick-off is at 3pm. Rovers’ boss Ronnie Moore has been named League One manager of the month for the second time this season.
