Tranmere Rovers manager Gary Brabin was pleased with the patience his side showed in beating Maidstone United 2-1 at Prenton Park this afternoon.

After taking a first half lead through Andrew Cook just before the break, The Stones levelled just after the hour mark through Alex Flisher.

But Brabin’s men kept believing and after a number of chances, converted in the 80th minute through Stephen McNulty to seal all three points for Rovers.

The manager told Tranmere Player HD: “We kept on going and created chances and thankfully got the winner and could have had a third towards the end too.

“We dug in, stayed patient and had some really good chances and got ourselves back in front, deservedly so I think.”

Brabin had praise for the two goalscorers and said their performances thoroughly deserved to have been the players to win Tranmere the game.

He added: “Cookie (Andrew Cook) has worked really hard up there and got his goal, and I thought Macca (Stephen McNulty) was immense today.

“We know that we have more in the tank and now we have a full week of preparation ahead of the next game, against Southport next Saturday.”
