Dale Jennings scored a stunning goal as Tranmere Rovers lifted themselves out of the bottom four with a 1-0 win over Plymouth Argyle on Saturday.

The 17 year old forward scored on the hour after dribbling through the Argyle backline and sliding the ball past keeper Romain Larrieu.

The away side should have taken the lead early on but Rovers keeper Peter Gulacsi blocked a Bradley Wright-Phillips effort.

Tranmere captain John Welsh cleared Reda Johnson’s header off the line and Gulacsi made a an excellent stop from Craig Noone late on.

Speaking after the game Rovers boss, Les Parry said:

“Dale is going to be one of those players who never scores a tap in. In the first half he could have got a shot off on two or three occasions and decided he wanted to twist their lads into the ground and it never quite happened.”

“In the second half he’s done it on three occasions, nearly scored once, pulled one back for Mendy and then scored the goal.”

“He’s always going to make holes for us, as you saw in the first half Zoom got to cross the ball a lot because they were sticking two men on Dale all the time. Dale is a nice young lad, a grounded young lad and we just need to keep him focussed.”
