Tranmere Rovers manager Keith Hill gave his reaction to Easter Monday’s 1-1 draw at home to Cambridge United.
Speaking in his post-match press-conference, Hill said: “We deserved more than the draw this afternoon. It is a little bit heated in the changing rooms and we are really disappointed with the referee’s decision in awarding the penalty against us.
“The first half should have yielded more goals, so we are really disappointed that a decision which shouldn’t have been awarded as a penalty has cost us three points.
“It is the second consecutive draw at home where we should have scored the second goal and if we had, we would have won the game which is obvious.
“The players are doing everything that they possibly can while we are without James Vaughan. We know and everyone in this league knows, it is not just his ability to score goals, it is his presence, his personality and he has a real fear factor.
“While we are playing quite well, we need to put the ball into the back of the net. In football terms, we are treading water at this moment in time, some of our performances have been excellent but we need to finish those games off in the final third.
“We are asking the players all the time; we are looking at trying to develop players and seeing what we can get out of certain players higher up the pitch. We are searching for the right formula to support these players as they are giving us everything.”
