Ronnie Moore: 'We could have scored more against Bury'

Tranmere Rovers manager Ronnie Moore praised his players following their 1-0 victory at Bury, but insisted his side could have won by a bigger margin.

Whites skipper Andy Robinson netted in the second half after missing a penalty in the first to make it three wins in a row since Christmas.

"We were a bit casual at times in the first half but in the second half we got into a better rhythm. I think we deserved to win and on another day we might have had one or two more. It would have been nice for the penalty to go in but the referee did well to spot it," Moore told the club's official website.

"I had a bit of a pop at half time because the standard wasn’t there that we wanted but in the second half we had how many corners and if the quality had been a bit better we might have had more goals.

"Robbo keeps going and he’s got that quality. He dips his shoulder, brings it back inside and it was a fantastic finish, enough to win the game."

The win consolidated Rovers' position at the top of the table. Leaving them three points clear of second-placed Sheffield United. However, Doncaster Rovers in third can join them on 50 points if they win their game in hand.

Tranmere take a break from league football this weekend when they travel to Derby County for their third-round FA Cup tie.
