Connor Jennings is looking forward to Tranmere Rovers’ League Two promotion battle as the season enters its closing weeks, ahead of Saturday’s fixture away at Colchester United.
Micky Mellon’s men, who are fifth in the division, will head to Essex off back of five successive wins in the fourth-tier, as they look to earn a sixth straight victory at the JobServe Stadium.
And with TRFC’s remaining games, starting with eighth placed Colchester, against teams in and around them in the league table, Jennings is excited to teat himself against the big-hitters of League Two and believes Rovers are good enough to earn an automatic promotion place.
Jennings said: “Every game that you are going to play, they are big games and there’s a lot of pressure on them, but they are the games that you probably enjoy the most so I’m looking forward to it.
“We believe, we are in good form, the belief’s there, the hard work’s there, everything is there so we just need to keep going.
“It was obviously disappointing, but it gave us a chance to get a bit of recovery in our legs and start the week on Monday, we’ve had a good solid week, so we’ve prepared.”
Jennings, 27, who has scored 11 goals in 43 appearances for the Prenton Park side this term, is taking it one game at a time.
He added: “You can’t skip ahead, we’ve got a massive game on Saturday so hopefully we can get three points and hopefully look at it even better.
“It was obviously different on Saturday watching the results come in. It wasn’t a bad day of results for us. We know we have to back that up with a good performance and three points on Saturday.
“We’ve had a good, hard week of training too so hopefully it can kick us on.
“It’s just like any team in League Two, it is always going to be hard. We’re away from home, we’ll have to go there and stay tight like we have done in the last seven games or so and go for the three points.”
