Tranmere live updates


FT - Braintree 0-3 Tranmere

That's your lot. Braintree gave a very good account of themselves, but couldn't match Rovers in the end. Tranmere progress to the Second Round, where they will face Chesterfield at home.


GOAL - Tranmere (Power)

Max Power benefits from good work by man-of-the-match Cole Stockton and finds the far corner from 12 yards out. That's the 19-year-old's first senior goal for Rovers, a club he's played for since he was eight.



GOAL - Thompson

Owain Williams does brilliantly to save Cole Stockton's acrobatic close-range shot but he can only parry the ball up into the air. Joe Thompson bundles the ball in from one yard out to give the visitors the lead. Harsh on Braintree.
