Perkins: We need to keep going

28 February 2019

Midfielder David Perkins feels that the momentum Tranmere Rovers have built up in recent weeks can stand them in good stead in the hunt for a League Two Play-Off place ahead of Saturday’s trip to Exeter City.

Having won three out of their last four games, Micky Mellon’s side are just two points and two places away from a Play-Off spot in the fourth-tier.

And while the 36-year-old Perkins, who joined from Rochdale in January, knows it will be a tough fixture at St James Park against Matt Taylor’s fifth-placed Grecians, he believes that TRFC can continue their current good form in Devon.

He said: “We’re starting to gel and you’re starting to see that on the pitch so we’re pretty happy at the moment, but we need to keep going.

“There’s 12 games to go, we’re counting the games down and get as many wins as we can.

“We’ve got a bit of momentum now. We had a tough game against Cambridge, took a draw down there so that was a good point. We’ve got momentum now, we look at each game and we’re looking forward to the game on Saturday.

“They’ll (Exeter) be there or there abouts around the Play-Offs like us. We played Notts County the other day and that was tough game, every game in the league is tough but there are three points up for grabs, there’s 12 games to play so we will try and win as many games as we can.

“It’s a tough place to go, it’s a long trip but there’s 12 games to go, there’s only three points up for grabs. We’re just the games one at a time, not putting too much importance on one game or the other, we’ll go down there with confidence and give them the respect so we’re looking forward to the challenge.

“We’re playing some decent teams in the next couple of weeks. This is what you want from football, to be in the mix at this time of year so we’re looking forward to the challenge ahead.”
