Neale Cooper was pleased to see an improvement in his team as they picked up a point at Prenton Park this afternoon.
After a slow start to the game, Pools offered more in an improved second half to grab an equaliser through Antony Sweeney,
"I thought the first half was scrappy, there was not really anybody in the middle of the park to bring it down and have that creative killer pass through the middle," Cooper told Pools Player.
"It's a fiery park, I know that, but at times they showed a bit more composure in the middle of the park than we did but I've said week in and week out that we lack that in the team.
"I had to play a few young boys today with Evan and Sam being out and young Jordan Richards came in at right back with Neil Austin going to left back and I thought he did well, second half especially.
"Jack Baldwin came in at centre half alongside Peter and was fantastic again.
"The effort was great today. After last week's disappointment to come here, I think Tranmere have won their last 4 games here, to go away with another draw that could easily have been more is a good return for us."
There was a strange moment just after the equalising goal when Ryan Noble was brought down by Owain Fon Williams only for the match official to brandish a red card at back-tracking defender Ian Goodison.
But after consultation with his assistant, the official changed his mind and correctly sent of Fon Williams and gave Goodison a reprieve,
"It wouldn't have been fair for him (Goodison) to come off," explained Cooper. "But I wouldn't have complained."
