Tranmere Rovers 2-1 Guiseley

Striker James Norwood scored a brace, including a late penalty, to help Tranmere Rovers seal all three points at home to Guiseley.

Danny Boshell fired Guiseley ahead with a long-range volley but Norwood nodded in Adam Mekki's corner to level.

Mekki fired wide after the break and Gary Taylor-Fletcher struck off target as the hosts pushed for a winner.

Norwood gave the hosts the win from the spot deep into added time after he was brought down by Steven Drench.
