Kieron Morris scored one and set-up another as Tranmere made it two wins from their last three Sky Bet League Two outings by beating Salford 2-0 in a fiery encounter that saw both teams finish the game with 10 men.
Morris opened the scoring from the penalty spot in the 13th-minute and turned provider early in the second half with his left-footed cross being glanced home by the head of striker Elliott Nevitt.
Salford's hopes of getting back into the match at 1-0 down were dealt a major blow in the 20th minute when Ibou Touray was given a straight red card for a high-footed challenge on Callum McManaman.
There was renewed optimism for the Ammies just before half-time after Tranmere midfielder Jay Spearing saw red for catching Matty Lund late in a 50-50.
But it proved to be short-lived as Nevitt's diving header doubled Rovers' advantage in the 48th minute and sealed a win that moves Micky Mellon's side up to 11th in the table.
Salford, meanwhile, drop to 17th, just one point outside the relegation zone.
