Assistant manager John McMahon has said he felt Tranmere were good value for all three points against Notts County on Saturday.

Despite going a goal behind, we headed into half time with the lead thanks to goals from Jason Koumas and Ryan Lowe, and then despite letting County back into the game we secured all three points and the win thanks to a sublime strike from Steve Jennings shortly before the full time whistle.

Speaking to the Official Site following the match McMahon thought three points were the least we deserved for our efforts so he was delighted to see us score the late winner.

‘We definitely deserved the victory. We showed a lot of guts, spirit and also a lot of good football as well. We had six corners in the first five minutes and I keep saying to the boys that we need to capitalise on the good spells we have and in the good spells keep it tight.’

The gaffer goes on to say that he feels we were definitely unlucky to have gone a goal behind in the game as he feels it was against the run of play, but he was delighted with the character and attitude shown to not only get us level but then to take the lead ourselves.

We didn’t have it easy with losing both James Wallace and Jason Koumas to injury in the match as McMahon described them as two of our ‘most influential players’ but he couldn’t fault their replacements for their efforts and getting stuck in so it was a real team victory as far as he was concerned.

As for those two though, the extent of their injuries won’t be known until early next week but Wallace went off with a groin problem and Koumas was substituted with a foot injury.
