Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon was pleased with his team’s performance against Macclesfield Town although was looking for better finishing at times.
A 84th minute goal was enough to separate the teams, but Rovers had earlier spurned a number of opportunities.
The manager told Tranmere PlayerHD: “I thought we played some terrific football at times but there needs to be an end to that and we need to be clinical at times.
“We kept believing that if we kept pegging away something would break for us and we’re very grateful that it did at the end of the game.
“We all know the quality that Liam has and he puts those crosses in with great pace and it was nice to see us be aggressive and try and get on the end of that.”
While more quality in front of goal was on the manager’s desired list, he could not fault their commitment and passion to the cause.
He added: “One thing that wasn’t lacking today was the desire to want to go and win those three points which is massive.”
