Tranmere boss Rob Edwards was pleased with his side’s display in their 1-1 draw with Bolton Wanderers at Prenton Park last night.
Jay Spearing gave the Championship side the lead with a long-range strike which arrowed into the bottom corner but substitute Eliot Richards headed home an equaliser in the latter stages of the second half to rescue a draw.
It was another good performance from the Whites, who also drew with Everton earlier in the week, and the manager saw many encouraging signs.
He said: “It was a good game. It started a bit slowly and a bit cagey but it really opened up and it was a good workout.
“We organised things well out of possession and the players who came on did very well. The players are getting fitter and making better decisions on the ball.”
Rovers fielded four trialists last night – Ibou Touray, Clayton McDonald, Danny Woodards and Gerardo Bruna – and Edwards says that he is coming closer to making a decision on the future of the quartet.
“We’ve got positions in the squad that need filling and the trialists are in for those positions. It’s just checking that they can do that, and maybe help us in other positions too.
“I’m getting there [on making a decision]; I don’t want to waste people’s time if there’s nothing for them at the club. All their situations are different but they’re here because there’s a chance of them signing a contract.”
