'If It's Football, It's Vital'

We Were Good Value For A Point

Manager Ronnie Moore has said that he felt Tranmere were very good value for a point in today's one all draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Moore saw us take the lead in the game thanks to another goal from Ryan Lowe after the opposition had seen Stearman sent of for a straight red card, but unfortunately they found an equaliser after we were also reduced to ten men following a straight red for Wallace.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game, Moore said it was a great start to the New Year and it was 'a point in the right direction' for him.

Dealing with the red cards firstly, Moore said the referee got it spot on with their sending off, but as for James Wallace he appreciates that as it was a high challenge he feels their gaffer would be as adamant that the referee got it right as he was for their card but he does add that Wallace knows he shouldn't have made the tackle but he thought he could win it.

As for the game.

'We'd started nice and bright and the three lads in midfield were looking fitter. When we got the goal there was no way they were coming back into it. When we were down to ten me it was an awful lot tougher as we saw in the second half when we were hanging on a little bit. I'm pleased with the effort and commitment they've put in and the crowd appreciated it.'

What matters now though is that it's something to build on in 2014 for the gaffer and it's a good point on the board against Wolves, but he knows it won't count for much unless we perform the same against Walsall.

One worry that Moore did have in the second half was the injury to loanee Arturworrey who he thought did very well considering he came in and hadn't really met any of the team, but he explains he 'thought he dislocated his shoulder, he thinks it has come out and gone back in. We were pleased he didn't have to come off.'

Which would've been our luck in defence really, but thankfully maybe that's a sign that luck has changed?

Moore also adds that the other loanee Pennington had an 'excellent debut' so he's hoping for big things from both of them as their loans progress now.

Finally, the gaffer added that Jason Koumas came off purely as a precaution because he felt his calf tightening up in the game and obviously we don't want to add to our current injury concerns as we look to really turn around our form in the second half of the season.
