Gary Brabin was pleased that his team kept another clean sheet as Tranmere Rovers picked up a point from a 0-0 draw at Dover Athletic.

Tranmere created some good chances as the game wore on and the manager felt they could have taken more from the match.

He told Tranmere Player: “It was nice to get a clean sheet, and I thought the longer the game went on that we were going to get a winner, but it’s not a bad point away from home.

“I thought we played some good stuff and we had a couple of good chances as the game went on, but unfortunately we couldn’t get those three points.”

The boss explained the half time substitution which saw Michael Higdon replaced with Jay Harris.

He said: “Michael Higdon was struggling in the warm up, he had a knock which he was feeling a little bit.

“It was too late to change the teamsheet so we started with it. We made the change and we looked a lot livelier in the second half.

“Jay Harris has been itching to play and it was good to get him on.

“It’s nice to see good players on the bench chomping at the bit to get on and make a difference.”
