TRANMERE Rovers' unbeaten run under manager Ronnie Moore came to an end at the weekend with a 2-0 defeat against Bury.

Rovers couldn't match the performance of their Gigg Lane hosts, who dominated the early stages and doubled its lead on 73 minutes.

It was a disappointing result for boss Moore, whose side has not lost a game since he returned last month.

They kick off their final six games of the current League One at Prenton Park on Good Friday with a match against Stevenage, 3pm. Their Easter weekend of fixtures conitnues on Monday with trip to MK Dons, kick-off 3pm.

The fixtures are worth six points to Ronnie's squad and if won will lift them past the 50-point barrier.

Reflecting on Saturday's result, the club's assistant manager Kevin Summerfield said: "We were very disappointed with the way the game panned out.

"It was a really important game which, to be fair, never got going.

"We didn't show any of the form that we've shown in the previous six games and you could say we probably got what we deserved."

"We haven't got that big a squad that we can move players around, so it's the same guys who have performed so well in previous games.

"They would have been tired on Saturday and at times it really showed.

"It'll be interesting to see how they react this week, particularly with the two tough games that we've got.

"But to be fair you can't question the attitude of this group of players.

"They've been terrific and will give everything that they've got.

"With six points available this weekend we'll be looking for a win to get us over the 50-point barrier."
