SWINDON TOWN: Moore left frustrated
TRANMERE Rovers manager Ronnie Moore was disappointed by his side’s decision-making in their 1-0 defeat at Swindon Town.
Tom Hateley tripped Alex Pritchard in the box to hand Swindon a penalty in the 29th minute and Dany N’Guessan’s resulting spot-kick was enough to separate the two teams after 90 forgettable minutes at the County Ground.
Moore, who has now led Rovers to five successive defeats, criticised his players after the game, saying: “I’m disappointed as it’s another defeat. I think we showed them too much respect in the first half and sat off and let them pass it but we adapted ourselves well in the second half. Their keeper hasn’t been tested and for me we made two wrong decisions in the penalty area.
“For the penalty you’ve got to stay on your feet, you can’t go to ground there. Then when we were in Liam (Ridehalgh) shot when there were people queuing up and he hit the keeper. If you make the right decisions in those boxes it changes the game.
“They had a lot of possession in the first half and in the second half we went and pressed higher up the pitch. But when we got in the final third the decision making or the final ball in wasn’t good enough.
“We can’t feel sorry for ourselves; we’ve got to get on with it. But with that commitment and that desire we’ll not be a million miles away.”
