Manager Rob Edwards has said that he felt Tranmere looked a better unit in last night’s two nil victory over Wycombe Wanderers.

Goals from Cole Stockton and Max Power gave us our first victory of the league season and our fourth from a possible nine, and speaking to the Official Site not only was the gaffer pleased to get his first managerial win under his belt, but he was delighted with the progress he saw the team make in the game compared to earlier performances.

‘It’s been a tough three days, I’ve been in the game a long time but nothing prepares you for being the manager of a team that concedes two late goals away. So there was a bit of soul searching for myself and it was a bit of a crash course in the disappointment of football management.’

Edwards says that as he was going through those feelings, he knows what the players were feeling and he knew it was his job to put a brave face on it and the bright and bubbly one when the players came back in on Monday for training and with the hard work they put in to prepare for this game, he’s delighted with how the team dug in and scrapped to ensure we got the victory this time round.

‘We were desperate to get that first win and we looked a better unit and didn’t sit too deep. We didn’t have loads of chances but Max’s finish was top class and Cole is somebody who has a ridiculous amount of potential and somebody I’ve challenged to score a variety of goals.’

Edwards ends the interview by joking that he’s certainly smiling a lot more at that full time whistle than he was last weekend and he’s hoping this is now the start of an ‘upward curve’ for us as we build the team and continue to improve.
