A James Norwood-inspired Tranmere roared back from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Stevenage on their return to League Two.
The hosts took the lead with 20 minutes gone, defender James Ball punishing Rovers for failing to clear their lines as he fired home from just inside the box to open the scoring.
It took just six minutes for Joel Byrom, in his second spell as a Stevenage player following his return to Broadhall Way as a free agent in June, to reintroduce himself, the experienced midfielder bending the ball past Scott Davies to make it 2-0.
Newly-promoted Tranmere were not about to go down with a whimper, though, with play-off hero Norwood slotting in to make it 2-1 before the break.
Just 10 minutes into the second period, Rovers were level through Norwood's second of the match, the forward converting after Ritchie Sutton nodded down a free-kick.
Stevenage were reduced to 10 men with 20 minutes remaining as full-back Johnny Hunt picked up a second booking for chopping down Ben Tollitt.
