Banks previews Swindon

17 January 2019

Tranmere Rovers midfielder Ollie Banks admits it was a frustrating time watching on from the side lines injured but is ready to kick on for the rest of the season.

The former Chesterfield and Swindon Town man marked his return to the starting line-up last weekend with a goal as Rovers secured their first win of 2019 at Cheltenham Town in a 3-1 triumph.

Now focused on his former team, Swindon Town, this weekend, Banks is expecting a difficult clash against the Robins.

Banks said: “I have played in League Two before and there is usually only 30 points separating top and bottom which is not very much at all.

“A couple of wins and you are right in the mix, but a couple of defeats can see you cut away a little bit. We have to keep winning games and we are more than capable of the Play-Offs. We set our targets as high as possible.

“It is frustrating watching games when you are injured, and you just want to be involved. It was a grind over the Christmas period with the amount of games that we had, the lads were in every day.

“I managed to get a few days off to recover from my injury, but it was a gruelling period for the lads and they did well to come through that.

“They (Swindon Town) have a very good squad, I played for them last season. We need to go into this game with our wits about us and put a good performance in.”
