Fighting spirit earned Tranmere Rovers first home win of season
8:52am Monday 28th October 2013 in Sport
Ryan Lowe's fifth and sixth goals of the season and a James Rowe strike earned Tranmere Rovers a 3-2 home win over MK Dons.
Lowe put Rovers ahead early in the match only for the visitors to move into the lead after half time.
However, a Lowe penalty and Rowe's strike gave Ronnie Moore's side their first home league win of the season.
Manager Ronnie Moore made one change to the team that started at Rotherham with Abdulai Baggie replacing Steve Jennings.
Ronnie said he was delighted with the fighting spirit shown by his side in the 3-2 home win over MK Dons.
In his post-match interview with website Tranmere Player, Ronnie said: "It's great to show the character from being behind to come back and win the game. There's nothing better than that winning feeling.
"I thought we controlled the first half and we were gutted to be coming in at 1-1.
“To lose two right backs and to then go 2-1 down early on...to come back is fantastic. That's the fighting spirit we talk about.
"[The first goal] was quality. He had nerves of steel for the penalty and I thought he was the best player on the park.”
On the club’s league position of 21st place, Ronnie said: "We're still under the white line instead of over it.
“If you win one more game you could be halfway up the league, that's how tight it is. It's important we hang on to as many shirt tails as we can."
