Davies raring to go against Macclesfield

12 October 2018

Tranmere Rovers goalkeeper Scott Davies is relishing the prospect of Friday night EFL football returning to Prenton Park against Macclesfield Town.

Rovers head into the clash with tbe Silkmen, who are winless this season and recently parted company with manager Mark Yates on Monday, aiming for a third win on the spin in the fourth-tier.

And Davies is hoping that Tranmere can continue their winning run in front of their own supporters under the Prenton Park floodlights.

Davies said: “I’m looking forward to it, hopefully it’ll be a big crowd following us. I love a game under the lights whatever night they are, but obviously everyone knows about the Friday nights at Tranmere in days gone by, so it will be nice if this group of boys and myself can create new memories.

Micky Mellon’s side are seventh in the division, currently inside the Play-Off positions heading into the fixture against the Cheshire outfit.

Davies, 31, believes that he and his team-mates were well equipped to compete at League Two level, and he feels that their good form doesn’t surprise anybody associated with the Club, given their recruitment over the past few seasons.

The stopper continued: “I always knew that we were well equipped for this league, I think the recruitment over the last few years when we were in the Conference was to be able to come into this league and hold our own.

“It is a long season and we’re not getting too ahead of ourselves yet.

“Looking and focussing on Tranmere, we knew we’d be okay and that’s all that matters.”

The encounter will have added spice to it, with Macclesfield finishing ahead of Rovers in the Vanarama National League last term as the title went to The Moss Rose.

Tranmere of course did end their three-year exile from the EFL by winning the Play-Off Final under the Wembley arch.

And Davies feels that the frustration of missing out on a title win can be used as motivation to earn the three-points against Macclesfield on Friday.

Davies added: “It is a little bit similar to Lincoln last time out, we owe them one, they won the league, the best team do win the league at the end of the season."
