IT'S a 'make-or-break' week for Tranmere Rovers as their battle for vital League One points continues.

Their unbeaten run stretched to four games at the weekend as they picked up another point following a 1-1 draw with Sheffield United.

Ronnie Moore's side face Rochdale at the Spotland Stadium tomorrow, 7.45pm, and take on Exeter City at Prenton Park on Saturday, 3pm.

Currently 16th on the League One table with 42 points, Rovers are six points away from the relegation zone.

Ronnie returned to Prenton Park two weeks ago and the side have picked up eight of a desired 16 points.

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

Looking back to Saturday's game, Ronnie said this morning: "If you look at what the bookies were saying, we were there to be beaten.

"I think the betting was 11 to 2 that we’d be beaten.

"So it was a fantastic result for us and I think it we got everything we deserved.

"It was a fantastic performance for the lads, but we haven’t done anything and haven't won anything.

"We actually came closer to the drop than we were before the game.

"We were seven points clear of the drop, get a great result like that and are six clear.

"It's a massive week for us with two massive games, which is pretty much make-or-break for us.

"Everybody doubted we could do it, but we've come back from behind again and got a point.

"It shows a bit of spirit and desire. For all the quality players Sheffield had, they didn't have the desire we had and that can cover a multitude of sins.

"The lads are happier now and are a bit more adventurous which is what's helped us pick up eight points in our last four games.

"We need that little bit of quality, but chances are coming and not being taken."
