Ronnie Moore speaks ahead of the tough away trip to Southend this Saturday.

Moore’s men won there first away game since October on Tuesday beating Colchester 1-0 and Moore is hoping his side can make it two away wins in a week as Rovers seek for a play off place.

Ronnie told Tranmere World earlier on today:

‘We’ve been talking about the away form and results wise it hasn’t been good. But performance wise we’ve been OK and on Tuesday we were the best side by a mile, and we got the break of the goal. Hopefully now that will keep everybody quiet about what we can’t do away from home.’

‘Southend won’t be easy. They’re a big strong side who are always good at home. It’s about going away and doing the right things. Hopefully we can go to Southend, get the win and then it really sets up the three home games.’

‘They’ve got good players, with Freedman and Robinson up front. We know the threat is there, and we know they’re a good side from set plays as they have a lot of players who are six foot plus. We have to be careful we don’t give away too many silly free kicks around the area.’

‘We’ve taken 19 points out of 21 at home and that’s a tremendous record. It’s important we don’t lose away games. We’ve proved we can win without Goodison because the back four were superb on Tuesday.’

Meanwhile Moore also revealed another injury has taken place but didn’t want to name who has became injured.

Moore finished…

‘We’ve picked up one or two little knocks so we’re not the biggest squad at the moment. I’m not going to say who they are but we’ll leave it until the last minute before we travel tomorrow.’
