New manager Micky Adams has said he was really pleased with the efforts of the players in the two all draw against Wimbledon at the weekend.

With Tranmere twice coming from behind in the game, the manager told the Official Site that he was delighted with the effort and the determination shown by the players in the game and he was of course pleased to see on loan Armand Gnanduillet open his account for us with a brace on the day.

‘It was terrific. I was really pleased with the effort. I thought they were excellent. I’m disappointed with the goals we conceded but in general play, particularly in the second half, I thought we were excellent.’

Adams goes on to say that a week ago when we conceded against Oxford you could clearly see it affected the team and their heads dropped and that’s been something he’s been trying to change during training and he felt the team responded to that well because they didn’t let their heads drop when Wimbledon scored, they dug in showed their spirit and kept going and we got ourselves back into the game twice so the players got their rewards on that score.

With Gnanduillet getting both goals, Adams goes on to say that in training this week we’ll now work more on getting him in the box and playing to his strengths as clearly the lad can finish and he was also pleased to see Liam Ridehalgh make a return as he knows former manager Rob Edwards did miss him in the squad and he knows what a bonus he is to the defence.

‘It’s been a good week all in all, while we haven’t got that win, at least we’ve scored. We’re unbeaten since I’ve been here and we’ve had a good week’s training. What we need to do now is not get complacent, work even hard and get the three points sooner rather than later.’
