Andy Parkinson praised Tranmere Rovers’ performance, following an impressive 4-1 victory at home to Leeds United U21s to open up their account in the Papa John's Trophy.
Speaking post-match Parkinson said: "It's brilliant to get a win. We scored four goals so it's obviously very pleasing, considering the last few games we've struggled."
"They (Leeds U21s) are good, aren't they! You can see by them they've got a set way of playing, which is like their first-team and it was difficult for our lads to manage that. But we thought we did really well with that, it was sort of a clash of experience against youth in many ways tonight. They were a really young side, but our lads dealt with the challenge really well and what more can you ask for than winning the game 4-1. There was some decent performances. We would've liked to have gotten a clean sheet, but it wasn't to be."
"A lot of the lads out there haven't played too many minutes we've obviously brought players in, so them games are brilliant for those players to get the minutes in their legs."
Parkinson also took the opportunity to praise Sam Foley, who delivered a fine showing on the evening with a brilliant brace.
"Sam gets in there really well. He lands on things in the final third and again another experienced player who's been doing that for a long time. So it was great for him to get a couple of goals tonight."
Parkinson also believes that tonight's showing will inject Rovers with a much-needed confidence boost.
"Like we said four goals and a victory. So after the last couple of weeks, that's the most pleasing aspect of today."
