Defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson says that Tranmere Rovers “need to start games better” after their 2-1 defeat at Fleetwood Town.
Rovers were a goal down inside the first 15 minutes through Josh Morris’ free-kick, before conceding eight minutes from time from Paddy Madden.
Tranmere pulled one back when substitute Paul Mullin steered in from close-range, with Micky Mellon’s side unlucky to come away empty handed.
Backed by a sold-out away support of 1,077 from the SWA at Highbury, Tranmere had their chances, but were unable to earn a point on the Fylde Coast.
And the Manchester United loanee gave his thoughts to the local media following the Sky Bet League One fixture.
Borthwick-Jackson, 22, said: “I think it’s a case of we just need to start games better. You’ve seen the intensity in the seconf-half, if we can use that in the first-half and limit goals against us, then we’ll be okay.
“We all just need to get the mindset where the game starts and we get going, but we’ve just got to keep going.
“We’ve got the quality in the squad to hurt teams, we just need to piece it all together and start finding results.
“We have to be better, ultimately. Decisions maybe didn’t go our way, but we have to be better.
“I think when we concede one, we have to shut up shop, ultimately we can’t concede at all, but we definitely need to tighten up in situations when we’re pushing for a goal.
“You can see that the team is starting to gel more now. You can see the quality in the squad and that we have depth, with injuries and players stepping in.
“It’s a case of players gelling and getting results together.”
