Ten-man Forest Green gave their League Two survival hopes a boost with a 1-0 home win over Tranmere.

Charlie McCann’s stunning strike was enough for all three points despite Ryan Inniss being sent off late on.

The returning Jordan Moore-Taylor headed narrowly past his own post after a mix-up with emergency loan goalkeeper Vicente Reyes.

The impressive Rob Apter shifted a yard of space and struck a fierce left-footed effort towards Reyes’ near post but the Norwich loanee tipped around the post.

Reyes had to be alert to deny Apter again after his effort was deflected towards his top corner but he parried away from danger.

Forest Green then produced a flowing move just before the break that midfielder McCann rounded off with a superb 20-yard strike into Luke McGee’s top corner.

Early in the second half, Apter found Harvey Saunders inside the penalty area but his right-footed effort was stopped by Reyes.

Inniss was given a second yellow in the closing stages but the hosts navigated Tranmere’s late pressure for a precious win.
