Tranmere Rovers defender Jake Caprice believes the competition within the squad for a place in Micky Mellon’s starting line-up is healthy and a huge positive for the Club.
Rovers will look to secure back to back victories in League Two this weekend when Exeter City visit Prenton Park.
Caprice, who started last Saturday’s 5-1 victory at Crawley Town, is fully aware of the challenge ahead when the Grecians, who currently occupy third spot in the league, come to town.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference at the Campus, he said: “We believe we should be near the top and there is no reason why we shouldn’t think that. We have played a lot of the teams near the top and we have nothing to fear.
“We take each game as it comes, and each match offers a different challenge and we need to rise to it and see what happens.
“It helps we have strength in depth and players can step in if anyone is missing. The manager trusts us. Competition for places is healthy.
“There is always someone in the shadow waiting to step in, so everyone has to be at it every single game and to be fair to the boys, we all have been. There is competition in every single position and everyone needs to perform every single day, either in a game or in training.
“Exeter City are a good footballing side. It will be a difficult game as every game brings a different challenge. Crawley was a tough game, but we took our chances and Saturday will be no different, another tough match.”
