Tranmere Rovers are leading Shrewsbury Town 1-0 in this afternoon's League One relegation clash at Prenton Park.

Rovers made a positive start to the afternoon, threatening the visitors' goal through Ryan Lowe before breaking the deadlock in the 19th minute.

Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro supplied the cross and young midfielder Max Power leaped high at the back post to head the hosts in front.

Shrewsbury almost pulled one back in spectacular fashion at the half-hour mark, as Luke Summerfield spotted Rovers keeper Owain Fon Williams off his line and went for goal from the halfway line, missing the target by inches.

The Shrews applied some pressure ahead of the break - with Fon Williams saving from Tom Eaves in the 36th minute before Jon Taylor missed the target from inside the box - but were unable to level the tie before the referee brought the half to a close.
