First defeat for Pools
Arran Lee-Barratt spreads himself to deny Tranmere's Ian Goodison. Having won their opening two games of the new season in convincing fashion, Pools came up short on the Wirral, with Craig Curren scoring the only goal. The result stretched Pools' winless run at Prenton Park to twelve games.
