Tranmere Rovers remain unbeaten after a narrow win against a resolute Guiseley Celtic side at Prenton Park. Guiseley keeper Daniel Atkinson was in fine form making a string of excellent saves but James Norwood broke the deadlock evading an offside trap and slotting home his fifth pf the season on 40 minutes. It was to be the only goal and gives Tranmere 19 point out of their first seven games.
Things did not go so well for the other two Moon sides in National League action. Chester were well beaten 3-1 at Woking. Kieran Murtagh gave Woking the lead but Ryan Lloyd equalised for Chester. Parity did not last though, Joey Jones had Woking back ahead within two minutes and a third from Chigozie Ugwu sealed a 3-1 win in the second half. eanwhile Southport after their excellent draw against Tranmere last time out, were thrashed 5-1 at Forest Green. Kieffer Moore and Mohamed Chemlal had the home side two up in 10 minutes. Player manager Andy Bishop gave the Sandgrunders hope early in the second half before they were then demolished. Charlie Clough restored the two goal lead, and Rhys Murphy and a second goal for Moore completed the rout.
