We Need To Be Moore Nasty

We Need To Be Moore Nasty

Manager Ronnie Moore has said that Tranmere are being too nice this season and we need to develop more of a nasty streak in our play.

Speaking to the Official Site following our recent loss to Notts County, Ronnie said we have to develop a nasty streak if we hope to improve our form, and of course we will be looking to bounce back in the second round of the Capital One Cup on Wednesday against Premiership Stoke.

'We're playing as individuals at the moment. Things are going against us and we've got to work a lot harder. If we get back to doing the right thing...that's getting out there, chasing, harrying and stopping people playing.'

If is the big word at the moment with our current run of form and Stoke is certainly not going to be an easy way to try and get a result to bounce back from the County disappointment, but Moore adds that at the moment we haven't got an aggressive midfielder at the club and he's looking for somebody to really try and stamp their mark on matches for us. Stop being nice, and get in there and break things up.

Although Moore obviously caveats that by saying he's not looking for a raft of bookings with players running around like headless chickens kicking everybody they pass, he wants controlled aggression from them all so we aren't so lacklustre.

As for the Stoke game, Moore confirmed he would be resting Ian Goodison and we'll also still be missing Jason Koumas, Andy Robinson, James Wallace and Jake Kirby through injury.

Tranmere, as things stand, are likely to be battling with our weekend opponents this season but we were on the wrong end of the scoreline on this occasion.

Carlisle United had Keith Curle in ch

Hartlepool Utd 0 Tranmere 0

A 'scrappy game' at the weekend resulted in Tranmere coming back home with a point, which away from home is always something you'll accept.

Victoria Park was the setting on Saturday afternoo

Tranmere fail to take chances in home defeat

A valiant effort from Tranmere wasn`t enough on the day as goals late in both half`s handing Huddersfield all three points.

The scoreline failed to paint the whole picture, with the homes side outplaying their second-placed opponents for large parts of the game. In fact, the Whites should have equalised through Adam McGurk in the second-half with the gap between the two teams at a single goal.

There were three changes made to the side that lined-up in the goalless draw at Oldham on
