admin

The substitute’s volley from Julian Bennett’s cross gave Forest an important win over their promotion rivals.

Junior Agogo had opened the scoring from the penalty spot on 50 minutes after Rovers’ Shane Sherriff handled in the box.

Tranmere started brightly and could have scored almost immediately, but Gareth Taylor’s header was parried by Paul Smith.

Rovers dominated the first half as Forest struggled and the home side created their first clear-cut chance just before half-time, but debutant Arron Davies’ shot was tipped over by Danny Coyne.

After Forest had doubled their advantage through Tyson’s strike on 78 minutes, Rovers went close but Chris Greenacre’s 25-yard shot was parried by Smith.
