Ronnie Moore: 'We deserved at least a point'

Tranmere Rovers manager Ronnie Moore believes that his side should have taken at least a point from their trip to Coventry City.

Tranmere Rovers manager Ronnie Moore has insisted that his side deserved at least a point from their 1-0 defeat to Coventry City.

The League One leaders went down to a first-half strike from Leon Clarke, but created opportunities to draw level in the second period.

"I think we should have got a point. We were poor in the first half, Coventry bossed it. We tried to change it and go with three lads with pace up front but we didn't get going. It was a sloppy goal we conceded from the corner," Moore told the club's official website.

"But give them credit we've had a right go in the second half, had four kicked off the line and on another day... Someone has to be more ruthless, we had a free header four yards off the line. We showed a bit in the second half what we're about.

"It was always going to be a tight game. It would have been great to get something and I think we deserved something but in football you don't always get what you deserve."

The result leaves Tranmere at the top of League One on goal difference, but second-placed Doncaster Rovers have played one game fewer.
