Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore hasn't given up on the play-offs after seeing his side slip to a third straight away loss in the league at MK Dons.
Headers from Dean Lewington and Darren Potter, plus Stephen Gleeson's cool finish left Rovers outside the top six and left the Dons nine points adrift of the play-off places.
Moore said: "You know when you play MK Dons they're going to have the bulk of possession so when you concede a goal after eight minutes it's always going to be tough.
"The sad thing for us is that it was through people sleeping and it's like in the heart for us when you end up chasing the game here.
"Two set plays have killed us. We've switched off defensively on both their free-kicks and it's cost us dearly.
"The way we've been playing it's warranted that we're out the top six - it's up to us to put that right.
"I don't feel any pressure, we've over-achieved on what was expected.
"But I'm not resting on my laurels, I've enjoyed this season, but I want to finish it well - not on the crest of a slump.
"Their task is still harder than our's to get in the play-offs and they have got a bigger budget than we have and probably better players."
