Tranmere Rovers 0-1 Wrexham

This weekend see's the two biggest and most well supported clubs in the National League lock horns for the second time this season. 

The last time the sides met was at Tranmere's Prenton Park on the 23rd of September 2017 and Chris Holroyd's 58th-minute goal gave 10-man Wrexham a dominating win. 

The Dragons played 77 minutes a man down after Sam Wedgbury was booked twice within 13 minutes.

Holroyd fired-in through a crowd of players from the edge of the penalty after a corner to shock the Prenton Park crowd.

Tranmere could not break through even in 10-minutes of added time after play was suspended for a spectator to be taken from the ground on a stretcher.

The result lifted Wrexham to fifth in the table, but left Micky Mellon's Tranmere languishing in 18th place.
