Thomas-Moore: Late winner

Thomas-Moore: Late winner

Southampton crashed to their first league defeat of 2010 as Ian Thomas-Moore's late penalty earned Tranmere a 2-1 at Prenton Park.

Rovers had the perfect start when Gareth Edds headed back a free-kick from Paul McLaren for Marlon Broomes to head in from close range inside three minutes.

But Southampton were level soon after when Ian Goodison blocked an Adam Lallana effort on the line and the ball ran to Lee Barnard, who found the left corner from eight yards.

Rickie Lambert missed a sitter from Jason Puncheon's cross and was off target with another effort eight minutes later.

Kelvin Davis in the Southampton goal saved comfortably from Craig Curran just after the hour, while at the other end Luke Daniels did well to hold a close-range effort from Lallana and even better to block a close-range shot by Barnard.

But Tranmere regained the lead with a well-struck Thomas-Moore penalty dubiously awarded when Dan Seaborne impeded Edds in the 84th minute, before holding firm for three impressive points.
