Max Power takes Tranmere Rovers to victory over Oldham Athletic
Tranmere Rovers.............1 Oldham Athletic..............0
MAX Power took Tranmere Rovers to a 1-0 victory and back into the league's top four on Saturday.
The midfielder's second-half strike against Oldham Athletic earned Ronnie Moore's squad their first home win in almost two months.
Moore said: "It was a massive result for us. We said it was a busy week and it could be make or break.
"It wasn’t a brilliant peformance but it was the right result.
"It was the first time this season that we've actually ground out a win without playing well, but we'll take it as it comes.
"We haven’t played particulalrly well in some games this season and we've had a little bit of luck.
"This was a tight game. We we're down to the bare bones and the team have given everything.
"It was always going to take something brilliant to win, either a free kick or a set play. We knew their strengths were set plays and I thought we handled them well."
The boss continued: "There weren't many chances in for either side and we got the break at the right side time.
"To be where we are with the injuries we had is tremendous.
"We keep getting knocked down but we keep getting back up."
There was one change to the side that started against Yeovil with Liam Palmer replacing the injured Mamady Sidibe.
Max Power started on the right side of midfield with Michael O'Halloran up front alongside Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro.
Moore revealed he would watch Ben Gibson in action for Middlesbrough Under-21s on Monday night and hopes the defender will return to the club on loan soon.
Rovers continue their League One campaign on Tuesday night, with an away game against Walsall.
They are away to MK Dons at Stadium MK on Saturday, 3pm.
Moore said: "In total there are nine games left and the lads are in a great position.
"You look at the games we've got in the run-in thp the end of the season...MK Dons, Bournemouth, Sheffield United, Walsall and Doncaster, they're mouthwatering.
"But we know we’ve got work to do."
