TRANMERE will overcome a tricky start to the League One campaign and emerge a stronger team, according to rival manager Steve Davis.
Rovers head to Gresty Road this weekend to visit a Crewe Alexandra side, managed by Davis, who have also made a bumpy start.
Davis said: “Tranmere are in a transitional phase but they will get better.
“Ronnie Moore is a very determined character. I like him. He’s a good guy who was assembled a very competitive squad.
“It is hard, he will have a very restricted budget like we have and when you lose your best players it is hard to replace them.”
Tranmere travel to Cheshire looking for their first Legaue One win after losing the opening day fixture at Walsall (3-1) and drawing 3-3 at home to Crawley Town last Saturday.
Davis added: “Ryan Lowe is a good goal-scorer and Steve Foster is a very accomplished centre-half coming to the latter end of his career.
“They have a lot of good lads still there from last season, which was a great season for them. They will be looking to build on that. They’ve not had the start they would have wanted, like us, but they are still a good side and we expect a good game.”
The Railwaymen opened the season with a 3-3 draw at home to Rotherham, lost 3-2 to Bury in the Capital One Cup and were beaten by the only goal of the game at MK Dons last Saturday.
