11th November 2000- New Division One, Tranmere Rovers 2 Watford 0


BBC Sport: Watford stumbled to their second defeat in five days but they could have few grumbles against a Tranmere side who dominated for long periods

Daily Telegraph, 13 Nov 2000

BSAD: Having lost our unbeaten league record in the week, we could probably have done without following that defeat with a trip to Prenton Park. The place is as cold and unforgiving as the numbing wind that seems to make an appearance whenever we go up there. More pointedly, our apathetic defending of crosses into the box against Sheffield didn’t augur well for an encounter with this lot. Rovers are not a great football team, but they are combative and competitive and more than capable of upsetting any visitors that are tired, off-form, or misshapen. And frankly we were all of those things.
