Assistant manager John McMahon was thoroughly delighted with Tranmere’s three one victory over Coventry City yesterday.

Goals from Lowe, Wallace and Kirby secured us all three points and speaking to the Official Site he was pleased with the overall efforts shown by the players on the day.

‘I thought the lads went about it really well. They showed a lot of enthusiasm, commitment, passion – all the things you’d expect from a team, but allied to that was a lot of quality football as well. If you’re creating chances it’s a positive. We were bright and we were out of the traps. We caused them problems and it was a good open game.’

McMahon admits it was a shame that we didn’t keep the clean sheet in the end because they are vital and it would’ve been a good confidence boost given some of our defensive issues this season but with the way that Owain fon Williams was raving at the defence, he feels the fans can at least see how important it is to the players that they keep improving and performing properly now.

The assistant gaffer also had plenty of praise for Jake Kirby for his effort, the delivery skills of Jason Koumas and he described Steve Jennings as being ‘fantastic’ on the day as well, saying he’s nick named him the ‘fire blanket’ because of how he calms things down.

He ends his interview by admitting that nobody will be getting carried away following the win because although it was huge for us, it is still only three points and we need far more of those between now and the end of the season.
