Manager Les Parry was pleased with Tranmere's performance despite seeing his side lose 2-0 at Huddersfield on Saturday.

Gary Roberts scored a superb opener just three minutes after coming on in the first half of the League One clash at the Galpharm Stadium and Scott Arfield sealed the points for the Terriers, who are now unbeaten in 32 league matches, late on.

"We've come to a team who will go up automatically and given a good account of ourselves," said Parry. "If Huddersfield are a measure for us this season then we measured up very well."

Parry criticised the performance of referee Chris Sarginson, saying: "The difference between the sides was the referee. There was a handball on the first goal, he booked Enoch Showunmi for diving when he has a two-inch cut on his shin and he's not given us a cast-iron penalty.

"Huddersfield are a great side but it's really, really disappointing that it should be the referee who differentiated between the sides."

Parry was concerned that his side were failing to hit the target when chances came and added: "You always have to be concerned when you aren't scoring goals. There were a couple of occasions when we didn't make the keeper make a save."
