Good Friday but bad Monday for Tranmere Rovers
IT was an Easter Weekend of mixed fortunes for Tranmere Rovers.
A 3-0 win over Stevenage at Prenton Park on Good Friday was followed by a 3-0 defeat by MK Dons on Easter Monday.
Friday's win took Ronnie Moore's side past the 50-point mark and back into the top half of the table.
Speaking on Rovers' official website, the manager said he was was bitterly disappointed by Monday's defeat, his first since returning to the club in March.
He said: "They've been fantastic for me since I've been here but that type of performance is the reason I'm at the Club.
"I've said to them that I don't want it again.
"A side I'm in charge of has got to show a bit of heart and commitment and you can't defend like that."
On his squad's performance, he continued: "I think we made them look good. They're a good passing side but they've not had to work work to win the game.
"They won't get an easier game than that. We didn't have enough guile, when we had the ball we gave it away. I'm so disappointed it's untrue.
"I've said to them that if they play like that for the rest of the season they won't win a point."
Rovers are now in 13th place in League One with a tally of 51 points.
Next up is Walsall on Saturday, April 14, kick off time 3pm, at Banks's Stadium.
Looking forward to the game, Ronnie said: "We'll try to get them right for Saturday."
