Several positives for McMahon

Caretaker boss John McMahon insists Tranmere proved their League One credentials after the 0-0 draw against Sheffield United.

Rovers now sit 19th in the table, one point and two places clear of the drop zone, but it could have been more for Rovers who dominated proceedings for large spells.

Ryan Lowe hit the post while Junior Brown and Jake Cassidy also went close for the home side, who came into the game on the back of two successive defeats.

And while they could not find a winner, McMahon has seen enough to convince him that Tranmere will be in League One again next season.

"We created a lot of chances and our energy levels were fantastic throughout the game," he said.

"We were on the front foot. We looked bright, sharper and overall we looked a lot better team than Sheffield United.

"Technically we looked good and we found space in behind them.

"We showed some fantastic touches and although we had to make two first-half changes the lads responded well.

"If we show the same belief, quality and commitment in our remaining games then I believe we will stay up.

"We gave the fans a lot to shout about and they got behind us but all we can affect is our own performances.

"We have experienced players in the dressing room and we showed a lot of confidence after the disappointment at Gillingham."
