Connor Jennings ahead of Morecambe

5 October 2018

Connor Jennings believes that Tranmere Rovers can end a good week of results positively at Morecambe on Saturday.

Micky Mellon’s side are 10th in League Two, a point adrift of the Play-Offs, following on from a draw at MK Dons last week and Tuesday night’s 1-0 win over table-toppers Lincoln City.

James Norwood’s strike just after the hour earned Rovers a hard-fought victory over Danny Cowley’s Imps at Prenton Park, with Tranmere’s match winner sent off for a second booking in the 93rd minute.

And midfielder Jennings is hoping that the unbeaten run can continue at the weekend when Rovers are in action against Jim Bentley’s men at the Globe Arena, who themselves are unbeaten in three games.

Jennings said: “On Saturday, we have another big game against Morecambe, so we’ll try and finish this week off really well.

“They are all important games, the most important thing is consistency and back-to-back wins, we’re all working hard to try and get that consistency, starting from the game on Saturday.

“It has been a solid start, the lads have been good so far but there is a long way to go but I think it has been a good week so far, a point against MK Dons on Saturday followed up by a win against Lincoln on Tuesday, so it has been a good week so far.”

The 26-year-old Mancunian, who has made 12 appearances in all competitions for Rovers this season insists he and his team-mates can continue to thrive in their first season back in the EFL after promotion under the Wembley arch in May.

Saturday’s game at Morecambe kicks-off a busy week for Mellon’s team, with a Checkatrade Trophy trip to Shrewsbury Town on Tuesday followed up by a Friday clash with fellow promoted side Macclesfield Town under the Prenton Park floodlights.

“We’ve played a few teams who are up there, and we could have beaten them in every single match, even the ones that we have lost, so we are very confident bunch of players, so we just need to keep going,” explained Jennings.

“It is still the same team, it is still the same bunch of players, we’ve bought a few in to add to the quality that we have already got, but we are keeping on doing what we are doing, keep doing our jobs.

“I think we have done well so far so it’s just about keeping those standards high.”
