Davies speaks after Oldham match

3 April 2019

Goalkeeper Scott Davies says it is all about responding in the right way after Tranmere Rovers’ seven-match Sky Bet League Two winning streak came to an end with a 2-0 defeat away at Oldham Athletic on Tuesday night.

A brace from forward Callum Lang either side of half-time saw Micky Mellon’s Rovers lose at Boundary Park, as they suffered defeat for the first time in 10 outings in Greater Manchester.

But shot-stopper Davies believes the focus must be on regrouping as Tranmere, who remain fifth, four points off the top three automatic promotion places in the fourth-tier, must be a priority as the promotion fight intensifies.

Tranmere are back on the road this Saturday when Rovers make the trip to South Wales for a fixture at Newport County.

Davies said: “I think if we are honest, we didn’t start the game well, we weren’t at it which is disappointing, but every run has to come to an end, we were never going to go and win every game from now until the end of the season, so it is about regrouping and going again on Saturday.

“We’re still in a fantastic position so we will go again.

“We’ll go back to the drawing board, look over it, take the hit on the chin and come again on Saturday.

“Not every game is going to go our way and if anything, maybe we’ll respond better when things do go against us, so we’ll comb over the game.

“If you look at the last eight games, we have probably picked up a lot more points than a lot of people thought, we’re in a fantastic position in the league, we’ve still got to play Bury and MK Dons so it’s all to play for.

“It’s about enjoying it, embracing it and taking the challenge head on and we have got a group in there that will do so.
