Late double sends Rovers top
Late strikes from Jake Cassidy and Andy Robinson sent Tranmere
to the top of League One with a 2-0 home win over Coventry.
Cassidy, 19, on loan from Wolves, struck 11 minutes from time
for the hosts before Robinson slotted home a second just four
minutes later – maintaining Tranmere’s perfect home league
Meanwhile, Coventry are without a league win this season having
lost their last three games and are still searching for a permanent
successor to former boss Andy Thorn who was sacked at the end of
Richard Shaw, in temporary charge alongside Lee Carsley, watched
on as his Sky Blues side made much of the early running and hit a
post through Carl Baker’s second-half header.
Buoyed by that chance Adam Barton lashed a shot goalwards
moments later that Owain Fon Williams did well to parry wide.
But Cassidy poked his fourth goal of the season home with the
outside of his foot after 79 minutes before Robinson steered Joe
Thompson’s neat pass in off the post.
