TRANMERE LEFT TO REGRET FINE MARGINS
THIS was a tough lesson in finishing for Tranmere who, having had a mountain to climb, showed genuine character to haul themselves back into the contest and almost draw level.
Small details will define Rovers’ destiny and Max Power will hope that his missed penalty does not prove costly at the end of the season.
Micky Adams continues to put on a brave face, but with defensive options few and far between he will have his work cut out keeping Rovers in the division.
In stark contrast, Burton are a club in the ascendancy and there can be little doubt that they have the firepower to cruise into League One.
Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is steering a solid cohesive unit that thrives on punishing sides who present them with the opportunities to score.
If Tranmere can take a positive out of defeat it is that they will not have to play sides of the same quality as Burton every week.
