Moore wanted more from Rovers
Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore was disappointed with his side's performance, after they suffered a 3-0 defeat at Aston Villa in the Capital One Cup second round.
Goals from Fabian Delph, Chris Herd, and Darren Bent sealed a comfortable victory for Paul Lambert's side, the first under their new manager.
Rovers have made a positive start to the season, sitting joint-top of the npower League One table, but were unable to replicate their league performances against Premier League opposition.
Tranmere's wait for a place in the third round continues, having not progressed past the second stage for 11 years.
Moore said: "We are better than we showed. No-one expected us to win but we would have liked to have put in a better performance.
"Even though Villa are struggling in the Premier League, they have got quality all over the place."
