Tranmere boss Rob Edwards was pleased with how his Rovers side recovered from Saturday's late defeat to pick up their first win of the season at Wycombe.
Tranmere lost 2-1 away at Shrewsbury at the weekend, having led the game with 89 minutes played.
But goals from Cole Stockton and Max Power gave Rovers a midweek 2-0 win.
"On Saturday I needed to give them a bit of a cuddle and I needed a cuddle myself," former Exeter assistant Edwards told BBC Radio Merseyside.
"I had to look after them over the weekend. It's a fragile profession being a footballer because your confidence is on a knife edge.
"I can maybe go after them a bit more and say what I want them to work at."
Tranmere, who were relegated from League One last season, host Cheltenham on Saturday.
