Robby’ told

‘You’re always disappointed when you go ahead and then concede from a set piece but I think it was a fair result at the end.

‘It was impossible to get the ball down and play, we tried, but the ball was just bouncing off the ground and it was impossible get it under control.

‘I think the whole team did well. Tranmere are a tough team I have to say, especially at home. It’s very tough to come up here and get something.

‘I felt we handled them quite well and didn’t concede much. Perhaps I would have liked us to be more positive in the sense that we should create a bit more but, as I said, it was a difficult pitch today.

‘You always have to wait until the end of the game because the other team will always throw everything at you when they have nothing to lose so it’s not easy to defend against.

‘My players were saying in the dressing room that the goal was handball, that he punched it in with his hand, so on top of that we’re disappointed it was allowed.

‘At the end of the day I think it’s a good point away from home.’
