Roberto Martinez's men edged above Tranmere on goal difference although they had to wait until late on to make the game safe.

Ferrie Bodde put the visitors ahead and Dennis Lawrence made it 2-0 before Lee Bradbury pulled one back from the spot.

That is how it stayed until Warren Feeney struck twice, the first from the spot, to wrap up the points.
