Jennings speaks after Macclesfield

2 January 2019

Tranmere Rovers Forward Connor Jennings was disappointed with the result after the points were shared at Moss Rose with a 1-1 draw against Macclesfield Town.

Jennings fired Rovers into the league against Sol Campbell’s side, before Koby Arthur levelled the scoring for the hosts in Tranmere’s first fixture of the New Year.

Speaking to the media after the game, Jennings said: “Obviously we’re a bit disappointed especially how we played, I thought we done really well today, I thought we were very comfortable but unfortunately we only came away with a point.”

“We looked really comfortable, we were knocking it about getting the weaknesses in their team and we looked really good I thought. Unfortunately we conceded a goal but positively it ends the away form losses so that’s a positive to take and a point on the board.”

“As a team we’re still a bit disappointed about the result but you’ve got to take the positives out of it and move on to another hard game now.”

Jennings netting for Rovers added his tally to eight for the season. The Englishman was deployed as a number ten by Micky Mellon and whilst he is pleased with his performances he knows he can improve further.

He added: “(Playing as a number ten) it was normal, I probably had to do a bit more between the sitter and the other centre half, but no it was alright but just a bit disappointed about the result really.

“It came behind me and I just took an extra touch and got in front of him and the defender came, and I sort of reversed it and luckily it went in off the post.

“It’s going alright, still a lot of things to improve on, I’ve still got to work hard and we’re only halfway through.”

Up next for Rovers is the FA Cup tie against Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur at PrentonPark. This is a game Jennings is looking forward to and he is hoping it can kick start another great year for the Super White Army.

“Personally it’s going to be probably the biggest game going bar the summer (Play-off final). We’ve just got to enjoy it, keep doing what we’re doing, work hard and with the magic of the FA Cup you never know.

“Big games like that (Spurs), it lifts everyone, the players, but as long as everyone at the club enjoys it and gets behind us then like I said you never know in the FA Cup.

“It’s been a great year for the club it really has. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it and I’m glad to be part of it, but a new year now so hopefully we can make new memories.”

Playing against elite opposition, Jennings is in no doubt about the qualities of Friday’s opponents, even if he is a Manchester United supporter.

“(Any Spurs players you admire?) I’m a United fan so no! They’re fantastic players, all International, all worth millions. You watch the T.V learning from these guys so it’s going to be a great experience.
