TOWN boss Danny Wilson has ripped into his side after they failed to take anything from their League One clash against 10-man Tranmere Rovers.

The Robins had the bulk of the possession at Prenton Park as well as a one-man advantage for over a third of the game, but saw three points go begging in the 1-0 defeat.

“They are under no illusions as to how I feel at this moment in time,” said an irate Wilson after the match.

“I’m very annoyed because what we’ve got in that dressing room there, they shouldn’t be in a position to lose this game today.

“This game should have been dead and buried. Even before the sending off we had three very good chances in the first half, that we haven’t converted.”

The Town supremo said he could be tempted to recruit an attacking player to bolster his options in the final third in the wake of the defeat.

“Maybe we’ll have to go out and get somebody in who can put that ball in the back of the net or create that opportunity with a bit of composure,” he said.

“I think it’s highlighted today that that little bit of craft and that little bit of nous in and around the box is what’s needed. To have the amount of the game we’ve had today and show nothing for it, that’s criminal.

“Ronnie (Moore) will say to his lads it was fantastic defending. Maybe it was from his point of view.

“From my point of view it’s poor in the attacking third, because we haven’t created half as much as we should have done with the amount of possession that we had.

“These are the games that when it does present itself to go and win, you’ve got to go and win them, and we’ve come away with nothing.”

Wilson denied his team were physically tired and instead questioned their mental application.

“It (the defeat) is nothing to do with physical stuff, they are as fit as anybody in the country,” he said.

“Between the ears, whether they are as fit as anybody in the country, that’s arguable.”
