Rovers 'must not take their foot off the gas' says Ronnie

ROVERS' boss Ronnie Moore has told his squad to keep up the pressure when they take on Exeter City at Prenton Park tomorrow.

The match, which kicks off at 3pm, follows Rovers' 2-0 defeat of Rochdale on Tuesday night.

Currently 15th on the League One table with 45 points, Tranmere are eight games away from the end of the season.

Tuesday night's result took Ronnie's unbeaten run as manager to five games.

But the relegation zone is still in sight and points are vital if the squad is to climb up the table.

Ronnie said: "We haven't achieved anything yet, we have to keep our foot on the pedal.

"The 50-point mark is our target and the sooner we get there the better.

"This is another tough game. If we think it's going to be easy we're going to be in big trouble.

"If we underestimate the opposition and take our foot off the gas we're going to be back where we started.

"If we do it right it's a game we can win, but in my mind it will be just as hard as the games at Sheffield United and Rochdale.

Rovers are currently 15th on the League One table with 45 points.

Exeter are 23rd on the table. Away from St James Park, Paul Tisdale's side have won two, drawn four and lost 13 games.

Weighing up this weekend's opponents, Ronnie said: "They'll be fired up knowing their manager, they're fighting for survival.

"If we do our job we shouldn't be looking at anybody else.

"We've given ourselves a lifeline but we don't want any hiccups.

"Seven points can soon change. If you lose against Exeter and Bury suddenly we've got six games left and some tough matches.

"Our players know, they won't take their foot off the gas."

Good Luck Rovers, I was there at Rochdale Spotland, incorrectly singing 'Ronnie Moore is beautiful' instead of 'Ronnie Moore is unbeatable' both sound right !
