TEN man Tranmere fell to a fourth consecutive league defeat as table-topping Stockport broke two club records with a 2-0 win in Sky Bet League Two.

Goals from Isaac Olaofe and Antoni Sarcevic meant former Rovers favourite Dave Challinor’s men secured a tenth straight league victory and an 11th on the spin in all competitions with Tranmere slipping into the bottom two. 

The hosts got off to a flying start at a packed Edgeley Park witnessing the 121st meeting in all competitions between the clubs from historical Cheshire – whose first contest had taken place in the Third Division North 102 years previously

Odin Bailey threaded a perfect through ball into the path of Olaofe, and he easily slotted home his 12th goal of the season.

Kyle Wootton headed over as Stockport were in control, before the big striker was denied by goalkeeper Luke McGee’s smart save.

Rovers lost Harvey Saunders to a second yellow card minutes after the restart, before Stockport added a second goal.

Sarcevic beat McGee after playing a neat one-two with Wootton.

The goal frame then saved Rovers twice as Wootton’s follow-up hit the crossbar after skipper Ryan Croasdale’s shot had struck a post.

Rob Apter twice went close for Tranmere late on, but they slumped to a fourth straight loss and are still without a point on the road this term after scoring just four goals away from home in their seven away league games so far.
