It looked like it was going to be a goalless fixture at the St Andrews Stadium between Coventry City and Tranmere Rovers.

It was all Coventry throughout the match and nothing was going the way that Tranmere wanted. Rovers were forced to make an early substitution in the first half after Paul Mullin was injured.

Stefan Payne received a yellow card in the 38th minute which added to the disappointment in the first half and Micky Mellon certainly had a task at hand in the dressing at the half time break. 

Rushian Hepburn-Murphy received the second yellow for the Tranmere side in the 58th minute after a late challenge on Dabo.

It was getting frustrating for the Tranmere side against the very dominant Coventry City.

But, the Coventry side was struggling themselves with getting a shot on target despite all of the chances they kept on creating. 

Tranmere were relying on their counter attacking play after them being out-played in every area of the field. The game changed as well as the scoreline in the 83rd minute when Corey Blackett-Taylor scored the only goal of the game.

It could’ve been 1-1 in stoppage time after O’Hare had a shot for Coventry City but Tranmere’s George Ray blocked the shot. 

Tranmere managed to keep Coventry out until the referee blew his whistle which saw the travelling team earn a tough three points, but a great three points at that.

That sees Tranmere Rovers move up to 18th now with there next fixture against Southend at home.
