UNPREDICTABLE Tranmere claimed the Youth Alliance Northwest Conference points in a rearranged game at Stockport.
Rovers, still smarting from a 6-1 home drubbing by Walsall the previous weekend, produced a more disciplined performance this time around.
They were a goal up on 19 minutes through Oscar Durnin. And although Stockport levelled seven minutes later, a strike from Cole Stockton on 55 minutes was enough to secure a third successive away victory.
Head of Youth Shaun Garnett said: "After a 6-1 win and a 6-1 defeat in our previous two games, it was important for the lads to knuckle down and learn how to defend a one goal advantage. They did that for the final 35 minutes on Saturday against a good Stockport side. They showed a bit more composure and that is encouraging. Now we have to show we can win games at home."
Tranmere, beaten in their last three games at Raby Vale, host Wrexham today (kick-off 11am).
