MORECAMBE came from two goals down to take all three points in a dramatic 3-2 win over Tranmere at Prenton Park.

Rovers opened the scoring after just four minutes when Harvey Saunders pounced on a defensive error to put the ball on a plate for Rob Apter who could not miss from three yards out.

Six minutes later and the hosts doubled their lead when Saunders was tripped in the area and Connor Jennings converted calmly from the spot.

Morecambe halved the deficit in the 14th minute when Charlie Brown fired the ball home from 10 yards, with Tranmere keeper Luke McGee and his defenders appealing for offside.

Apter had a glorious opportunity to extend Tranmere’s lead with 20 minutes left only to be denied by Archie Mair in the Morecambe goal.

And Rovers were made to pay when substitute Jordan Slew levelled with eight minutes remaining before Jacob Davenport won it with a glorious 25-yard free-kick.

Tranmere boss Nigel Adkins said: “It was a tough one to take and we started the game ever so well to go 2-0 up.

“It was a great first goal from Rob Apter and then Connor Jennings making it two from the spot, it was well deserved.

“But they got themselves back into the game and all of a sudden it makes it a bit more challenging against a team who have won their last three games.

“Even at 2-2 I’m thinking we can still go on and win the game and once again the officials have played over time and they’ve scored to leave them elated and leave us in a difficult position.

“Consistency is what I’m after and I’m going to have to reflect on that at the end of the game.

“The result has gone against us but what I’ve got is an honest and hard-working bunch of players.

“There are some things we’ve got to improve on and there are some things we’ve done very well.”
