Lee Vaughan was the match-winner for Tranmere Rovers with a 10th minute strike but did deflect off a couple of Wrexham defenders before going in.

The goal gave Tranmere Rovers all three points with a 1-0 win and the ex-Cheltenham man as quick to claim the goal.

“I’m definitely claiming the goal!” he stated. “The worst thing about it was the celebration and it took me 10 minutes to recover from it!”

Vaughan has been playing in a wing-back position recently with Micky Mellon employing three central defenders, and he says it is a role he is thriving on.

“It’s a tough position but one I enjoy and we have to produce in those positions because we’re providing the width to the team and putting balls in the box.”

The 30-year-old praised the 1300 Tranmere supporters at the Racecourse Ground on Saturday afternoon.

They made plenty of noise in supporting the team and Vaughan said they certainly played their part in Rovers achieving the three points.

“We can’t thank them enough. They were absolutely brilliant so credit where credit is due, they’re great.

“They drive you on. It’s most important in the last 10 minutes, the fans were right behind us and helped us keep the ball out of our goal.”
