Manager Les Parry was happy with a draw in a dour encounter of few chances between Tranmere and Yeovil at Prenton Park.

The wet conditions were never going to make it easy. Perhaps the best chance of the game came three minutes from time when Town substitute Kieran Agard raced clear but David Raven got back to make a last-ditch tackle.

Parry knew his side would have lost had it not been for Raven's challenge and he was content with a point.

"I think we have got to be satisfied with a draw. It was a fair result," said Parry. "Yeovil came here with a game plan and it worked. We started brightly enough but got bogged down. We needed someone with that little bit of guile and vision but no-one was available.

"We did create a couple of chances but they hit us well on the break and we could have lost the game in the end but our full-back made a superb saving tackle. We can't complain overall. The ball did not drop for us and we became less of an attacking threat as time progressed.

"Last year they turned us over here in a similar type game, so I suppose I've got to be pleased not to have lost again. At least we have kept a clean sheet and we have got to be happy with that."
