Manager Ronnie Moore couldn't praise the lads more after our one all draw with Preston yesterday.
Tranmere took the lead in the second half but Preston grabbed the equaliser in the dying minutes of the match, and they would feel it was the least they deserved given the chances they created but we stood up to them well and coped with their threat pretty admirably.
Speaking to the Official Site following the match, the gaffer explained that he thought it was a fantastic game and he knows the players gave their all on the day and that's all he can ask of them, but given the performance they put in he can't fault them for their efforts.
'They threw caution to the wind and bodies in there and one of our centre halves got caught flat footed and their lad put it in the back of the net which was soul destroying. We can build on it and we're out of the bottom four. We want to stay out of there.'
Moore adds that he knew we would cause them trouble because of our pace out wide, and given Chris Atkinson's finishing ability on the training pitch he should be getting more goals, so when he was in that position he backed him to put it away, but in terms of the game plan he thought everything but their equaliser was carried out perfectly and on another day we'd have cut out the cross or maybe got a second to win the match.
A point does keep us ticking over though and the gaffer appreciates that, especially as it means we have something to build on moving forward now especially following the MK Dons win and the draw against Rotherham leaving us on an unbeaten run of three games following the hammering by Leyton Orient.
Hopefully that unbeaten run can continue for a good few more matches, especially if we pick up more three points along the way.
