TRANMERE Rovers returned defeated from Oldham last night, bringing a seven-match winning streak to an end.

A brace from Callum Lang sealed the 2-0 win for the hosts at Boundary Park. Micky Mellon's side dominated the play but were unable to find a breakthrough against the Latics.

Rovers were followed by 2,500 fans to Boundary Park.

In an interview on Rovers website, manager Micky Mellon praised the phenomenal support received from the fans, but expressed disappointment that his side could not deliver a performance to match their support from the stands.

He said: "We are still in a fantastic position, we still have loads and loads to play for, we will learn and move on, we will go through things.

"We will make sure when we come in on Thursday we'll get back to work again and we'll move forward because there's a tremendous amount of massive games for Tranmere to play in.

"The away was second to none, it was fantastic and I’m just disappointed that we haven’t delivered for them.

"We let a massive crowd down if we are honest by not getting a result but in terms of effort, we have everything we had but in terms of smartness or when the opportunities came to be better, we just weren't at it tonight.

"We had a lot more control in terms of having a football than what we have in a long, long time away from home but we just weren’t good enough when we did get it in to wide areas.

"We didn't really get at people or create enough out there and when we did the ball was hitting the first man.

"Credit to Oldham, they have beat us 2-0.

"Obviously, we are disappointed with the goals that we gave away, we will be disappointed when we get in to good situations, we are usually a bit more clinical with the passing and imagination.

"I thought Oldham defended fantastic all evening.

"Our set-plays, the delivery had to be better, it wasn't good all night, we had loads of the ball but when we do get it in to good areas, we have to be a bit more imaginative, be a bit cleverer, and show a bit more quality."
