Tranmere Rovers 1-0 Guiseley

Tranmere moved to the top of the National League with a routine victory over managerless Guiseley.

Daniel Atkinson twice thwarted Andy Cook in a dominant first half for Rovers, first saving his bullet header before fumbling his long-range drive.

James Norwood finally ended their resistance, evading the offside trap to fire home his fifth goal of the season.

Guiseley's Javan Vidal had a rare effort on target but they remain bottom after six consecutive defeats.
