Robinson: Seals the win

High-flying Tranmere grabbed an emphatic 2-0 win away to Brentford with well-taken strikes either side of the break.

Robbie Weir gave the visitors the lead inside the half hour in Saturday's League One clash at Griffin Park, heading home Andy Robinson's pin-point cross unmarked at the far post.

Brentford striker Clayton Donaldson wasted a gilt-edged chance to haul the Bees back into it just before the break, firing his effort straight at Owain Fon Williams.

Gary Alexander saw a speculative effort bounce off the bar for the hosts, but that was the closest Uwe Rosler's side came to breaking their duck.

Any hopes of revival were ended a minute after the restart when Robinson lashed home an unstoppable dipping drive from 30 yards that left Brentford keeper Richard Lee with no chance.

Lucas Akins was a constant threat for Tranmere and saw two efforts go close to extending the lead, one of them flashing into the side netting.
