Dale Jennings inspired Tranmere Rovers to their second consecutive League win of the season on Saturday.

Jennings scored twice and set up a goal as Tranmere beat MK Dons at home to record their first back-to-back success in League One this season.

The youngster who only recently signed professional terms at the Club scored in the 3rd and 25th minutes either side of an Ian Thomas-Moore penalty to give Rovers a two goal cushion at half-time.

Jennings also set up Thomas-Moore for a fourth goal on 76 minutes. Peter Leven converted a first-half penalty for the Dons while Sam Baldock added a second for them on 85 minutes.

Rovers Manager Les Parry was delighted with his young protégé, he said:

“I said to Kevin (Summerfield) that we need to take Dale off because if anyone is watching they’ll offer us a couple of million pounds. Just the fact that Karl (Robinson) took the full back off after 25 minutes says everything.”

“You can’t stop Dale because he’ll chop and he’ll change and he’ll come in and go out again. That’s one of his problems, he goes in and out once too often, but everyone can see what sort of prospect he is.”

“We had a little word with Dale yesterday saying that he hasn’t made the keeper make a save for a few weeks. He’s had a lot of twisty turny things but no end product. Today he showed the end product.”
