McCullough looking to gain momentum ahead of Cambridge

14 February 2019

Luke McCullough feels that Tranmere Rovers can hit some momentum as the League Two season reaches its business end.

The Northern Irishman believes that if TRFC can show their form that served them well earlier in the campaign, then a Play-Off push is not out of the question.

Tranmere are currently 12th in the fourth-tier following last Saturday’s 2-0 home win over nine-man Stevenage, seven points off the Play-Offs.

And with two away games coming up – starting with a trip to Cambridge United on Saturday before a rearranged fixture at Port Vale on Tuesday, 24-year-old McCullough is confident Tranmere can go on a run of positive form.

He said: “We showed just in and around Christmas we won a few games in a row and that can really kick you on in this league. We’ll look to do that obviously, we have a quick turnaround of games, Saturday-Tuesday – so if you win a few games in a row and pick up points quickly it can shoot you up the table.”

“Cambridge have picked up quite a bit recently so it won’t be easy but we’re full of confidence that we can go there and get a win.

“Obviously it was nice to get the win (last Saturday) under our belts. 15 games are still enough games for us to go on a bit of a run and push on for the Play-Offs and there’s enough points up for grabs to try and do that.

“We need to start winning more games, it sounds simple, but it is what we’ve got to do. We went on a bad run before Saturday and didn’t pick up enough wins or enough points, so we need to get back to what we were doing early on in the season and start winning more games.”
