Tranmere remain top of League One despite losing 1-0 to Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena.

League One leaders Tranmere Rovers have suffered a narrow 1-0 loss at Coventry City this evening.

Coventry were the more aggressive side from the start, calling Owain Fon Williams into action early in the game to keep out Cyrus Christie.

Zoumana Bakayogo was also kept busy in the opening 45 minutes of the match, making a number of crucial blocks for Tranmere as Coventry pushed for an opening goal.

The home side's efforts were rewarded in the 20th minute, when Leon Clarke fired the ball in from close range to give his side the lead.

Clarke had a chance for a brace in the first half, but Fon Williams was able to keep him out the second time.

Coventry continued to have the better of the chances after the break, while David Amoo looked the most likely to find an equaliser for Tranmere.

Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro kept Joe Murphy busy towards the end of the match, but could not find a way past the Coventry keeper.

Tranmere remain top of the League One table despite the loss, while Coventry climb to 10th.
