Jennings: I know where the Club should be

23 May 2019

Tranmere Rovers midfielder Connor Jennings says that he and his team-mates are treating the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off Final against Newport County at Wembley Stadium on Saturday afternoon as any other normal game.

Micky Mellon’s men are back under the arch for a third year in a row, aiming for a repeat success of last term’s National League Play-Off Final 2-1 victory over Boreham Wood which saw Tranmere promoted with 10-men back to the EFL after a three-season absence.

Standing in their way are Michael Flynn’s Exiles, with the Welsh club contesting for a place in Sky Bet League One come August.

And Mancunian Jennings, 27, insists that Tranmere won’t get carried away and have treated the build-up as they would for a normal fixture.

He said: “We can’t get too carried away and we have to treat it as a normal game and let the fans get excited for that Final, but we have to be professional and treat it as any other game, it will be a tough game.

“I think it’s massive, knowing the surroundings and the occasion and we're looking forward to another game there.

 “It would be a great achievement to get the Club back into a league which is more suitable for them so hopefully we can go and do that.

“There is excitement, obviously it’s been a long week since the last game, so it has given us enough time to calm down a bit and crack on with the work.

“We enjoyed Monday night but pretty much straight away we calmed ourselves down, we had a few days rest which was nice after a busy period, but it is back to work now.

“I think we are going to do the same as we do every match, to go there and win the game and do our jobs and do what we have been doing to get us to this Final.

“We will remain positive and we are looking forward to it.”

Rovers are set to be backed by thousands of the SWA for their third visit to Wembley Stadium for a Play-Off Final in the space of three seasons, and Jennings wants to help take the Wirral outfit back up to the third-tier, a league that they have not competed in since 2014.

Jennings added: “I know the standards of the Club and I know what their expectations are, and I know where the Club should be and it has been a great season all-round, but to actually do it, we just have one final game.”
