Wycombe go top with straightforward win at Tranmere

Wycombe moved to the top of Sky Bet League One after cruising to a comfortable 2-0 victory against Tranmere at Prenton Park.

Adebayo Akinfenwa nodded home in the 43rd minute before a Joe Jacobson penalty on the stroke of half-time proved enough to deliver all three points for Gareth Ainsworth’s side.

Tranmere had started the game brightly but could not maintain their impetus for long before the Chairboys took control of the match.

Akinfenwa was on the bench when the two sides met in the FA Cup here last weekend but, when Jacobson found him unmarked in the Rovers penalty area, his goal was a formality.

It got worse for Tranmere two minutes later when Darren Potter brought down David Wheeler in the penalty area, gifting Wanderers a spot-kick that Jacobson confidently converted.

Micky Mellon made a double attacking substitution at half-time but, despite the efforts of Morgan Ferrier and Corey Blackett-Taylor, the end product was lacking as the 18th-placed hosts missed the opportunity to gain breathing space over the teams below them.
