Tranmere booked their place in the Johnstones Paint Trophy Northern Section semi-finals with a hard-fought victory over League Two side Bury at Gigg Lane.Manager Les Parry made four changes to the side that was beaten 5-3 at Bournemouth, with Ian Goodison being rested completely whilst Joe Collister, Dale Jennings and Max Blanchard dropped to the bench as they were replaced by Jermaine Grandison, Peter Gulasci, Lucas Akins and Zoumana Bakayogo Sean Elliott Jersey as Tranmere started with a 4-4-2 formation.The home side had every right to feel confident heading into the game on the back of a 2-0 win against another League One side, Exeter City, in the FA Cup last Saturday but backed by over 500 travelling fans, the away side started the brighter with the early pre sure Bruce Bowen Jersey paying off as Burys goalkeeper flapped at an Enoch Showunmi cro s before the ball fell to veteran striker Ian Thomas-Moore, who controlled the ball before volleying it into the net past two defenders on the goal-line to become Tranmeres top scorer with his seventh Tony Parker Jersey goal of the campaign.In a half of few chances, it was very much defences on top in the first 45 minutes as both sides struggled to test the opposition goalkeeper though Jo s Labadies goalbound effort was brilliantly saved by the young Branagan in the Shakers goal whilst Peter Gulasci turned Nicky Ajoses shot round the post in the early stages. As with the first half, Tranmere dominated the opening of the second half, containing their opponents well before creating chances with Thomas-Moore coming closest in hitting the bar though he was adjudged to have been offside Keita Bates-Diop Jersey after being put through by strike partner Showunmi as the pair continued to combine to good effect for Rovers.However, the home side grew into the game and started testing Gulasci as he saved well from Lenell John-Lewis header before Showunmi brought a good save from Branagan following a mazy solo run that began in his own half. The Nigerian was replaced by Sam Morrow with 7 minutes remaining and appeared to be carrying an injury which will worry both the manager and the fans.Full-backs Tim Cathalina and Zoumana Bakayogo had to cope with livewires Ajose and Haworth down either wing as the hosts pre sed for an equaliser but it was to no avail for the tricky wingers as the Tranmere rearguard, Marlon Broomes in particular, held firm for a clean sheet to put the Whites within Tim Duncan Jersey 3 games of Wembley with a tie against Huddersfield, Carlisle, Sheffield Wednesday or Hartlepool lying in wait.
