Ronnie Moore was pleased to see his Tranmere side secure seven points from his first three matches in charge following a 2-1 victory over Preston.

Graham Cummins headed Preston in front after twelve minutes before Tranmere levelled through an Enoch Showunmi header two minutes later. Rovers sealed victory in the 67th minute when Andy Robinson netted in off a post after being set up by Ian Goodison.

"I thought we were fantastic to be fair almost from start to finish," said Moore.

"We showed a lot of spirit and desire. Preston threatened occasionally and it was a good game.

"Seven points from three home games is good and it could easily have been nine. But there is still a big job to be done. We are not safe yet and the sooner we get past 50 points the better."

Preston boss Graham Westley was obviously disappointed, saying: "We appear to take a couple of steps forward and then go backwards.

"We started brightly and got a good goal from a set piece on which we have worked hard.

"It was disappointing to concede so quickly afterwards and particularly in the manner it happened.

"Tranmere showed more fight than us in the second half and that was disappointing for me.

"It should have been a good confidence boost when we got ahead but they reacted quickly and our work in defence should have been better when they got a second goal."
