Match Report – League 2 – Stevenage Borough 0, Tranmere Rovers 0

Struggling Stevenage hosted Tranmere at Broadhall Way this afternoon and held the visitors to a 0-0 draw. This is not a result with which Rovers’ fans be at all happy.

Rovers, sporting their black away strip, had an opportunity on goal in the opening seconds when a free-kick from Khan that couldn’t quite reach the head of Monthe.

However, further chances were few and far between. It was the hosts who had the best chance of the first half when, in the 27th minute, Norris was denied his headed chance by Tranmere goalie, Davies.

The closest either team came to a goal in the first 45 was when Ferrier’s cross was badly misjudged by the home side keeper, but the ball bounced harmlessly off Cumming’s near post.

The remainder of the first half and the early minutes of the second half were a perfect display of scrappy football. Neither of which could take control of the game.

In the final minutes, Davies pulled off a great save at his near post, meaning Rovers returned back to Prenton Park with a point. Stevenage remain above second-from-bottom Grimsby on goal difference by extending their unbeaten league run to four games.
