A blistering opening half-hour by Yeovil earned them three welcome points with a 3-1 victory over Tranmere.

Boosted by the arrival of loan signing Gavin Williams they scored three goals to leave Rovers struggling.

They took the lead after seven minutes when a poor clearance was picked up by Dean Bowditch and he raced through to beat advancing goalkeeper Joe Collister from outside the box.

Two minutes later Yeovil added a second when when long throw was flicked on to the far post where Andy Welsh scored from close range.

The third Yeovil goal followed in the 27th minute after a free-kick on the right by Andrew Williams found its way to Paul Huntington, who again scored from close range with the Rovers defence all at sea.

The visitors never gave up and had some scant reward in stoppage time when Ian Thomas-Moore converted a penalty after a foul by Huntington.
