Davies delighted with Notts County win

24 February 2019

Tranmere Rovers goalkeeper Scott Davies was delighted with a clean sheet following Rovers’ 1-0 victory against NottsCounty at PrentonPark.

Connor Jennings hit home in the second half to secure all three points for TRFC as Micky Mellon’s side recorded consecutive triumphs in League Two.

Tranmere’s stopper was pleased with how his team mates defended all over the pitch to clinch a shut out and also praised the support of the Super White Army.

“We’ve been working hard on the training field on clean sheets. We’ve been rewarded with three clean sheets in four and going forward we’ve giving ourselves a platform and a base to kick on now.

“Nors (Norwood) sets it off, when he’s at it like that pressing it helps everyone behind and it’s a team game so we attack as a team, we defend as a team and we did that today, and to be honest I thought the crowd were magnificent, sometimes you need that little push over the line and they gave us that today.”

The recent solidity at the back is something the manager has been drilling into the squad. Davies believes at home, not conceding can go along way to gaining maximum points.

“The gaffer was banging it home over the last couple of weeks about staying in games and keeping the zero as long as possible because teams will bend and they will give you a chance, especially here it’s hard enough coming here anyway.”

He added: “But when the crowd are on top as well, your legs suddenly give way, I’ve been there before at other places. We’ve started fighting more for the zero and it gives us a platform.”

Scott was also aware how TRFC had to perform well despite County currently sitting in the lower end of the division.

“We knew it was going to be a difficult game. They’ve got good players that have played at the top level, but I think first and foremost if we equip ourselves in the manner we know we can, we give ourselves a good chance and we did that today and we got the result.”

With the games running down until the end of the season, Davies knows the importance of all remaining fixtures.

“We know what we’re fighting for and we’ll continue to do so and we’ve given ourselves a good chance.

“We’ve put ourselves in a good position now but 12 big games to go so enjoy it, savour it, because these kinds of things don’t come around every season. I’ve been in football for a long time and you have to fight to stay in these races.”
