Charlie Jolley and Tom Davies fired improving Tranmere to a third straight win with a 2-0 triumph at Harrogate.
The pair both struck in the second half as the Wirral outfit also ended a run of 21 contests on the road without a clean sheet – the club’s longest sequence since December 2002.
Earlier, during a first half of one-way traffic, Harrogate had been unfortunate not to take a lead into the interval.
The best two chances saw Josh March’s outstretched leg guide Matty Foulds’ inviting left-wing cross narrowly wide and Matty Daly call Rovers keeper Luke McGee into a smart near-post save.
Tranmere, meanwhile, failed to register a single shot in the opening 45 minutes.
But Rovers boss Nigel Adkins made a double substitution at the break and the momentum of the game completely shifted.
In the 54th minute, one of those half-time replacements – Jolley – opened the scoring when he charged into the box to collect Connor Jennings’ pass and fired past an exposed James Belshaw from 10 yards after home attacker Abraham Odoh had surrendered possession cheaply.
Skipper Davies then doubled the advantage in the 70th minute, rising highest in the home six-yard box to meet Regan Hendry’s right-wing corner with a firm downward header.
