Ian Dawes: “A tough result to take in the end”

19 August 2023

Tranmere Rovers manager Ian Dawes was disappointed by the result in losing 4-3 at home to Salford City on Saturday after a promising first half.

“I thought first half we did really well. I thought we deserved to be 2-1 up. We conceded a poor goal which we know about but deserved to be 2-1 up at half time and then unfortunately had two injuries which forced two changes upon us.

“You make those changes, you go out, and then to concede after a minute from half time, we know is not acceptable, it’s not good enough.

“It just changed the flow of the game a little bit. It’s really unlike us because we defend really well normally and in a good shape and we don’t give many chances away, but today we looked like we were going to be vulnerable defensively.

“Going forward, we looked like we were going to score every time we went forward. It’s a tough result to take in the end, we had to commit players forward and go for it so when we conceded the fourth it was trying to get back in the game.

“Even when we got back to 4-3 we still had chances but like I say, disappointing result. The first half was really good, but coming out for the second half, that minute hurt us.”
