Last updated : 18 November 2009 By Shotsweb's Steve Gibbs

Managerless Rovers beat Leyton Orient 1-0 in a first round replay at Brisbane Road on Tuesday night – just their second away in of the season, as they languish in 23rd place in League One, with only Wycombe Wanderers below them.

‘Boasting’ both the worst attacking and defensive records in their division, Rovers sacked John Barnes and assistant Jason McAteer on 9 October, with physio Les Parry taking temporary charge.

Ash Taylor’s first ever goal for the Club, on 83 minutes, saw Tranmere through their replay despite Orient enjoying greater possession and more chances. The first game had ended in a 1-1 draw.
