Tranmere’s win at Orient costs manager Embleton his job

The result against Carlisle in their previous league match put Tranmere in 5th position in the division and two points outside of the automatic promotion positions.

Leyton Orient’s last league match was a 1-0 away defeat at Bradford City. They have drawn three and lost three of their last six, leaving them in 12th position in the League 2 table.

Match Report – League 2 – Leyton Orient 1, Tranmere Rovers 3

Tranmere’s visit to Brisbane Road resulted in a deserved 3-1 win, making it two away wins in the last five days. Tranmere have moved within a point of the automatic promotion places.

Goals from Paul Lewis, Kaiyne Woolery and Keiron Morris secured the win for Rovers, with Orient’s goal coming from sub, Jamie Turley at 68 minutes.

The defeat appears to have cost Orient’s manager, Ross Embleton, his job after he parted company with the club following the game. The defeat left them at 14th in the League 2 table and without a victory in their past seven games.

Paul Lewis opened the scoring for Tranmere with a close-range shot at 24 minutes after Orient failed to deal with a cross sent in by Jay Spearing.

As the half-time whistle blew, the score remained at 1-0 to the visitors, with Leyton failing to ahve a single shot on target for the entire first period.

Kaiyne Woolery, who raced through the host’s defence before slotting the ball low into the corner, notching up his 10th goal of the campaign.

Just seven minutes later, sub Kieron Morris was left unmarked to head a Warren Feeney corner into the back of the net.

Orient brought one back at 68 minutes when substitute Jamie Turley scored with his very first touch heading in a free-kick from James Brophy.

Tranmere fans will be well please with today’s capital result!.

Matt Hibbert’s thoughts…

Another great away win, didn’t get out of 1st gear and didn’t really need to, 3 shots on target and 3 goals, it’s like I said last week, we need to be more clinical in front of goal, and today we were.

Just hope the injuries to Vaughan and Lloyd aren’t too serious as they are vital players for us.
