TRANMERE Rovers returned from Nethermoor Park with a point in the bag after drawing 0-0 with Guiseley in the National League on Tuesday night.

Micky Mellon's side almost had the perfect start when Adam Buxton’s cross from the right found Andy Cook but the striker directed his header inches over the crossbar.

The hosts had a chance a few minutes later when a ball forward caught Rovers' defence out with Reece Thompson charging down on goal but Scott Davies came off his line sharply to parry the ball away to safety.

Rovers worked into good positions without creating too many clear cut chances and then after the half hour mark, Liam Ridehalgh did well down the left and sent over a low cross which Cook got on the end of but steered his effort wide.

The best chance of the second half came when Cook did well to get hold of the ball on halfway then threaded a through ball to Jack Dunn who raced in on goal but he dragged his shot across the face of goal and wide of the target.

Cook had an effort blocked inside the six yard box but it was not to be as Micky Mellon’s team had to settle for a point against resolute opposition.
