Tranmere v Leeds Utd - managers' views

11 August 2007 :: by Chris Hudson

Dennis Wise was clearly pleased with the win by his under-pressure squad but did not get carried away in his after match comments,

"We did not play well in the first half but we managed to sort a few things out during the interval.

"We were so much better in the second period and it is nice to get off to a good start.

"We certainly enjoyed that result today but there is a long way to go.

"It was so important to get off to a winning start but we are still on minus 12 points."

Like many fans Wise was happy that it was Tresor Kandol that had scored the late winner,

"A lot of supporters got on his back last year but I'm sure this group of players I have got here will help him this season."

Tranmere Rovers manager Ronnie Moore, father of former Leeds striker, Ian Moore was clear in his mind that his team had given the winning chances to Leeds through errors rather than Leeds taking the match from them. Moore said:

"...we have been beaten by two set plays.

"We said not to give away unnecessary free-kicks away around the box. We gave them two in the second half and they scored from the second one. We were naive in setting up the wall. We had a five-man wall where two or three would have done.

"We've not given them a real chance in open play."

"When a side is only 1-0 down they've always got a chance. We knew they were going to get a rollicking and come out up a gear but we never kicked on.

Despite an opening day defeat Moore was upbeat about Tranmere's chances for the rest of the season,

"I don't think people should get their heads down. We played nice and bright in the first half. It's not doom and gloom."
