Time to seek out ways to smooth Wallace’ passion
TRANMERE are "on the case" with James Wallace over the skipper's tackling.
Wallace picked up his second booking since November for a challenge on Jake King during the 2-1 home defeat to Preston last Saturday.
Manager Ronnie Moore was concerned the challenge risked another red card following Wallace's dismissal for a tackle in the New Year's Day game against Wolverhampton Wanderers. That one cost the midfielder a three match ban.
Moore said: "Everyone seems to think it (the tackle on King) was not as bad as it looked but it looked reasonably bad to me. We could see why he got booked."
Moore admitted: "It's a flaw in his make-up at the present time.
“We keep talking to him about it.
"It is difficult when you are an aggressive type player and part of your game is making tackles.
“He just has to time them and do them right."
