Tranmere were held to a 2-2 draw by Marine in a pre-season friendly on Saturday afternoon.
The first chance of the game came on nine minutes when Jason Mooney was called into action and the keeper pulled off a fine save to keep out Nick Rogan's top corner bound effort. From the resulting corner it needed a Paul Black header at the back post to keep the ball from crossing the line and giving the home side the lead.
Four minutes later Rovers took the lead. Abdulai Bell-Baggie broke free on the right wing and his cross found fellow trialist Jonathan Tehoue who controlled, turned and shot into the bottom left corner from 12 yards.
However, the advantage didn't last long, with Danny Grannon levelling with a neat finish from Michael Ordish's corner.
A couple of comfortable saves from Mooney prevented Marine from going ahead, while substitute Joe Conchie - on for the injured Jonathan Tehoue after 34 minutes, twice brought saves out of Dean Pye, the second a fine stop towards the top right corner.
Conchie was replaced by Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro for the second half but the game didn't spark back into life for ten minutes, when Marine went ahead. A corner conceded by trialist Michael Kamara was sent to the back post by Ordish and powerfully headed in by Matty Brown.
On 60 minutes Rovers made seven changes, with Conchie rejoining the action alongside Mark McChrystal, Zoumana Bakayogo, Michael Kay, Lucas Akins, Cole Stockton and Danny Harrison, and it was the young striker who equalised five minutes later, coolly converting a cross from Akpa Akpro.
Akpa Akpro broke through to a one on one with the keeper on 85 minutes but his low effort hit the legs of the keeper. The striker had another chance when he was bundled over in the area two minutes later and a penalty was awarded but he put his effort high over the bar.
Rovers continued to press forward in the closing stages but a third opportunity was wasted when he shot over the top from a Bakayogo cross.
