Match Preview

Jennings pushing for start Highly-rated striker Dale Jennings is pushing for a start when Tranmere tackle in-form Exeter. The 20-year-old came off the bench to net the equaliser and earn Rovers a point in their Good Friday clash with Hartlepool, leaving manager Les Parry with a decision to make. Andy Robinson also impressed after coming on as a substitute against Pools and he too is pushing for a starting berth. Ian Goodison and striker Enoch Showunmi shook off knocks to play on Friday and should again line-up against the Grecians. Club captain John Welsh is hoping Tranmere can finally secure their League One status by picking up three points. "We've got to concentrate and see the season off. We'll be looking to get three points on Monday and put [the threat of relegation] to bed," he said. Exeter boss Paul Tisdale will be reluctant to make changes as his in-form side go in search of a sixth straight win. The Grecians underlined their play-off credentials with a 2-0 home victory over Oldham on Good Friday. Skipper Matt Taylor did not feature against the Latics after he failed to recover from the muscle injury which had ruled him out of last week's win over Leyton Orient. Striker John O'Flynn replaced the unfit Daniel Nardiello up front and Tisdale will assess Nardiello and a number of other players who have been nursing knocks. Defender Billy Jones has been troubled by a back problem and first-choice goalkeeper Artur Krysiak could again be on the bench as he steps up his comeback from a thigh problem.

Match Report

Rovers secure status Exeter's play-off hopes faded as Tranmere deservedly took the three points they needed to ensure safety in a thumping 4-0 win. City could have few complaints as a five-match winning run came to an end. Tranmere made much of the running and visiting goalkeeper Artur Krysiak did well to turn an Andy Robinson shot against the bar after 12 minutes. City gave warning when Jamie Cureton put an angled shot just wide but it was the home side who continued to threaten. It was no surprise when Tranmere took the lead in the 44th minute. Michael Kay beat Krysiak with a superb left foot strike from fully 25 yards. Exeter could make little headway and Tranmere doubled their advantage in the 67th minute with a delightful lob by Lucas Akins over Krysiak. It became 3-0 five minutes later with Enoch Showunmi converting a pass from Steve Jennings. City had no answer and Akins made it 4-0 with a 90th minute header from a cross by substitute Adam McGurk.
