Having led the table for much of the season, Rovers have fallen to sixth position following five defeats and one victory in their last seven outings.

But with Sheffield United only four points better off in second and with many of the high-flyers still to play, Moore is confident his men can mount a final charge.

"We've still got everything to play for, we'll have a big say," he said ahead of Oldham's visit to Prenton Park this weekend.

"It's not like we need other teams to go and do things for us - we've actually got to play the top two, we've still got to play Sheffield United, we've still got to play Doncaster.

"There's Walsall, who are still in and around where we are. MK Dons will still think they've got a chance and we've still got to play them, we've got to play Bournemouth.

"So I'm looking forward to those games, they're the ones I think we'll be okay in. It's the ones you're expected to win where we seem to be tripping ourselves up."

Moore added: "On Monday I told them we don't want any bottom lips out and sad faces around the place.

"It's a fantastic achievement to even be in with half a chance of being in the play-offs, so we don't want to be disappointed that we're sixth now and we've been top of the league for four months.

"We've got to start playing the ball a little bit more and upping the tempo. With 10 games to go and 30 points to play for, there's everything to play for."
