Danny praises opposite number

28 March 2013

Danny Wilson has heaped praise on the job Ronnie Moore has done at Prenton Park, ahead of the clash with Tranmere Rovers on Friday.

The Wirral outfit, League One's surprise package to many this term, led the division for the majority of the first half of the season before suffering a post Christmas slump, but Wilson has given a glowing reference to his counterpart, someone he has the utmost respect for.

The Blades boss, who is backing his team to respond positively to the defeat at Stevenage, said: "Any team must answer the criticisms thrown at them in the next game and that remains our focus.

"Taking everything into account there is no better place than Prenton Park for us to address the shortcomings we had at Stevenage. I am fully confident we can go there and get a positive result, if we do it sets us up nicely for Carlisle on Monday.

"Tranmere are always strong at home, though, and Ronnie (Moore) has worked miracles to keep Rovers in contention at the top.

"Ronnie has done well in the loan market and utilised it to their advantage - they remain in contention on merit. They had a wobble when they struggled with injuries, much like us in January. Their win over Stevenage last week will fuel their belief again and rightly so, so it will be a tough game on Friday afternoon.

"Nobody expected Tranmere to be in contention for promotion but Ronnie has installed a level of consistency from day one, he has done a fantastic job and he will be desperate to finish it off with promotion but we are keen to dent those ambitions."
