John McMahon insists Tranmere have what it takes to stay up, despite slipping back into the relegation zone after losing at Brentford.
Two second half goals killed off any Rovers fight as they lost 2-0 to Mark Warburton’s promotion chasers.
And caretaker boss McMahon admitted his side deserved to lose.
“They were the better side,” he said.
“They’ve got the better players. You expect them to have more of the ball, but we’re disappointed in the end.
“They were the better side and we can’t have any complaints.
“I’m more disappointed still about the Saturday game though, and not tonight. We did get a reaction, whatever people think. The lads did have a go.
“It’s going to be a long trip home. I’ll mull over and assess things.
“Until it’s mathematically certain, we’ll still be there. There’s enough in that dressing room, still with spirits, fight, character and ability to get us out of the hole that we’re obviously in.
“I see enough in most of the players to still instill me with confidence.
“I’ll never give up, and I don’t think the players will ever give up. So rest assured, we will keep fighting. We will still be working hard and we’re still all in this.
“We will still get out of this.
Rovers no face a six-pointer at home to Notts County on Saturday, and McMahon admits it’s a huge game.
“We’re fighting for our lives,” he continued.
“We’ve still got to keep going, however low everyone’s feeling.
“We’ve got to react and try to bring the positive side of things out and get a valuable three points on Saturday.
“It’s a massive game, there’s no bones about it. It’s absolute huge for everyone concerned, the whole squad, staff and supporters.
“It’s like a cup final for us.”
