Manager Dean Keates was delighted with his team’s success at Prenton Park, even more so considering they played for some 85 minutes when reduced to 10-men following Sam Wedgbury’s early dismissal.

“To a man I thought we were absolutely outstanding, even before the sending off,” he said.

"We had the possibility of a penalty in the first couple of minutes, but it didn’t happen.

“Then there was a bit of a scuffle with Sam and their player gets booked. Sam gets one back and then he’s sent off. He’s held his hands up in the dressing room, he got a little bit carried away.

“There’s no malice in the tackle, Jay Harris seen him coming and played the game. There was no contact but the referee has given him a second yellow card.

“The players have had some stick on social media this week, unfairly if I’m being honest. They are in there working hard for each other and working hard for the football club.

“We had a bit of luck today, but we earnt that.

“It’s been a frustrating time for Chris Holroyd, but he’s a good professional, kept himself fit and done all that was asked of him by the physio and rest of the staff.

“So it was good to welcome him to the party today.

“Now we go into the Sutton game next week, which should be an exciting one. They are top of the table and somewhat dark horses. We are though at home and will be looking for the three points.”
