Rovers continue~winning streak


Paul McLaren put Tranmere ahead in the seventh minute with an excellent strike from the edge of the box following a short corner by Stephen Jennings.

Rovers doubled their lead after 14 minutes when Calvin Zola shook off two challenges to fire beyond Simon Royce from 20 yards.

Tranmere continued to make the pace but Zola was unlucky with three good efforts.

Gary Mulligan produced the only real first-half effort for the visitors with his header comfortably held by Danny Coyne.

Adam Miller’s 30-yard strike was saved and substitute Leroy Griffiths saw a 59th-minute shot deflected for a corner, but that was as good as it got for the Gills.
