Ronnie Moore has said that following the game against Stevenage today, he feels we should’ve taken all three points from the match, but there are positives we can build on again.

Tranmere hit the workwork on two occasions through Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and Evan Horwood, but the ball just wouldn’t fall for us in terms of making the breakthrough in the goalless draw.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game, the manager explained.

‘I think we had enough of the game to have won it. The two efforts that hit the post were fantastic strikes, we just didn’t get the breaks. We looked a lot more solid and moved it well.’

Moore adds that unlike other games so far this season he was pleased with how we played defensively and he can’t criticise any of the players for their efforts, it was just unfortunately one of those days at the office where the commitment and effort was more than there, but it was just that spark or shread of luck we lacked.

There were also three penalty shouts in the match and Moore says he’s spoken to the referee who swears blind that non of them were awardable, and he’s convinced that all three were clear penalties and should have been given – but the referee has the whistle and it’s his call to make.

The manager confirms that Ian Goodison also left the pitch in the second half because he’d picked up a hamstring issue and had to be taken off to limit any complications, but it’s a case of waiting and seeing how it responds with rest now.
