'Most complete performance' earns Rovers victory over Notts County
TRANMERE Rovers put in “the most complete performance” of Ronnie Moore’s reign to continue their unbeaten run and stay at the top of League One.
Saturday’s 1-0 away victory over fourth-placed Notts County had the boss reaching for the superlatives as he praised his squad’s “fantastic” performance.
After 11 games and with the Wirral club still leading the league, Tranmere fans will be daring to dream once again that their club is in with a real promotion-chasing chance.
Ronnie is keeping his feet firmly on the ground, however: “Our aim at the start of the season was to get to 50 points.
“That’s still the thing for me, and if we can get 50 points before April then we’ll look at it again and see where we are from there.
“Saturday was probably the most complete performance we have had since I’ve been here.
“When you consider Notts County are a big club with 30 players and a massive budget, for us to go there and beat them was fantastic.
“I don’t think out keeper had a save to make all day. It shows how good we were that on another day we could have had three of four goals.”
Saturday’s result followed a mid-week victory when Rovers beat Scunthorpe 3-1.
Ronnie added: “It was a big week and we took six points from the two games, which was fantastic. It just proves that anything can happen in football.
“You’ve got to have belief in your ability and the lads are just riding the crest of the wave and enjoying themselves, but I’d hate to think that any of our players were complacent.”
Moore was forced into making one change to the team on Saturday as the injured Andy Robinson, who picked up a hamstring injury in the game against Scunthorpe, was replaced by Adam McGurk.
Tranmere’s League One campaign continues on Saturday when they take on Yeovil Town at Prenton Park.
