Oldham Athletic Youth 1 Tranmere Rovers Youth 0
TRANMERE could not break the losing habit in the Football League Youth Alliance even if their performance in falling to the only goal at Oldham was an improvement on the 6-0 thrashing they suffered at Walsall a week before.
Head of Academy Shaun Garnett said: "We've still got to do a lot better in terms of our tactical understanding of the game.
“The second-year boys in particular need to show a better grasp of the responsibilities their positions require."
l Tranmere League One away fixture at Swindon Town, originally set for Saturday December 22, has been brought forward to Friday December 21, with a 7.45pm kick-off.
