Tranmere suffered disappointment at Prenton Park as they fell to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Sutton United in League 2.

The game was end to end in the first half, but neither team could force the keepers into any saves.

Callum McManaman went closest for Rovers when he curled a shot just wide of the far post.

Despite the end to end football the score remained goalless at half time.

The second half followed the same pattern, with both sides trading possession without finding much in the final third.

But that all changed in the 71st minute when Tranmere captain Peter Clarke was caught out at the back,.

He lost possession to Isaac Olaofe who went through one on one to fire passed Tranmere keeper Ross Doohan and give the away side the lead.

Tranmere pushed for an equaliser but could not find the back of the net which was the story of the day for them.

And the chorus of boos at full time were clear as Rovers again displayed their struggles in front of goal.

Their next match is next Saturday away to Bristol Rovers.
