Nelson looks ahead to Crawley trip

3 May 2019

Centre-back Sid Nelson feels that the focus must remain on Saturday’s final day trip to Crawley Town as Tranmere Rovers prepare to embark on the Sky Bet League Two Play-Offs later this month.

Rovers’ regular season concludes with the long journey down to Sussex, and despite already being assured of a top seven finish, Nelson insists that TRFC cannot let their standards drop as the result will have implications on who Micky Mellon’s side will face in the Play-Off semi-final.

Londoner Nelson, 23, who is on loan from Sky Bet Championship club Millwall, has made seven appearances for Tranmere since linking up with the Wirral outfit in January.

He said: “The boys have still got their heads up and I’m looking forward to the possibility of another four games.

“We all know our roles and responsibilities from what we have been told to do in training, it is just about going out there and doing them.

“We want to go in to the game and win to take our form going in to the Play-Offs, we don’t want to go in to the games dropping our standards our intensity, we’re going in to the game on Saturday 100% looking to win and carry that form in to two big games that are coming up.

“It is about just focusing on us at the moment, time will tell after Saturday who we have got but until then it is just focusing on Crawley, going there with the right attitude and hopefully keeping up the good form that we have shown.

“We have to go in to Crawley with the right mentality and if we do it will stand us in good stead going in to two tough games that we have got coming up.

“We just have to keep focused and go in to the Play-Offs with a good mentality and we need to go to Crawley will full focus.”
