Perkins: There were improvements

10 August 2019

Central midfielder David Perkins believes that Tranmere Rovers made improvements in their performance despite a 2-0 defeat away at Portsmouth on Saturday afternoon.

Micky Mellon’s men were beaten on the South Coast as Ben Close’s 30-yard volley opened the scoring midway through the first-half before Tom Naylor netted from close-range late on.

And 37-year-old Perkins hopes that Rovers can take the positives from their display in front of over 18,000 inside Fratton Park.

Perkins said: “There’s been an improvement from last week and hopefully there will be an improvement again with a win next week.

“We caused them a few problems in the first-half but as soon as they got their goal changes the game and the crowd got on top, so it was always going to be tough.

“It was disappointing to concede in the manner that we did but that’s football.

“We know it’s going to be a difficult season and we’re getting used to this level, the sooner we’ll get used to it the better but we’re looking forward to coming to places like this.

 “We have got a few young lads who haven’t played at this level and it might take them a few games to find their feet but I’ve every confidence in them and this squad.

“There is belief there and we’ll look forward to Tuesday and the next games now.”
