Tranmere Rovers goalkeeper Scott Davies feels he and his team-mates must learn after their opening day 3-2 home defeat to Rochdale at Prenton Park on Saturday afternoon.
Returning to Sky Bet League One following back-to-back promotions, Rovers almost earned a point after trailing through Ian Henderson’s double at Rhys Norrington-Davies’ strike.
But in front of over 8,000 supporters on the Wirral, Tranmere staged a late comeback when Stephen Dooley turned into his own net and Connor Jennings struck a low effort across goal in added time.
And Davies, 32, who was appointed as the Club’s new captain last month, believes Rovers have to learn and adapt to an “unforgiving” division.
Speaking to TRFC’s official website, he said: “In football, you can’t expect to get a result, you have to go out there and earn it and in certain moments today we didn’t do that and as the gaffer said we’ll comb over it and learn from it and go again next week.”
“I just thought that in certain moments, we came up short whether we lost our shape or didn’t press as a team as a team and the higher up you go, if those moments aren’t done right then you get punished so we have to learn our lesson and we have to learn it quickly.
“It’s an unforgiving league, there’s some good teams in there so we need to make sure we learn quickly and move on.
“We need to be better. Maybe in League Two or the Conference you get away with one or two, but the higher up you go, you don’t get away with it so we need to make sure we are there and at it.”
