Two second-half goals in five minutes gave Tranmere a 2-1 win over Yeovil at Prenton Park.

It was a welcome sixth home win for the Merseysiders to raise hope of survival in League One.

The visitors had looked comfortable up to half time but suddenly lost their way at the back.

Neither keeper was troubled in a dire first half hour. The best chance fell to Tranmere's Terry Gornell but he blasted over from close range in the 28th minute.

Yeovil keeper Alex McCarthy held on well to a 20-yard strike as Gornell tried to atone minutes later.

Dean Bowditch had no luck with a couple of efforts for Town and home keeper Luke Daniels was rarely tested ahead of the break.

Tranmere broke the deadlock in the 48th minute with Ian Thomas-Moore finding the corner from 16 yards as the ball bounced about in a crowded penalty area.

They doubled the margin after 52 minutes with Ash Taylor flicking home from a Craig Curran cross from a rehearsed free-kick move.

Bowditch wasted a good opportunity when high and wide after 55 minutes for Yeovil but they pulled a goal back in added time when Ryan Mason netted from the spot after Shaleum Logan brought down John Obika.
