Caprice glad to be back on the pitch

29 September 2019

Tranmere Rovers right-back Jake Caprice was glad to be back in action against Ipswich after a period on the sidelines through injury although he admits that defeat was dissapointing in Suffolk

Micky Mellon’s men were level at half-time in Suffolk after Stefan Payne had cancelled out Luke Garbutt’s free-kick from 25-yards for the hosts.

But goals in the second-half from Kayden Jackson, Jon Nolan and Kane Vincent-Young saw Rovers slip to a loss on their travels.

Londoner Caprice, 26, was back in Tranmere’s first-team against Paul Lambert’s Tractor Boys after an ankle injury had kept him out since August.

And Caprice says that he is frustrated with the display, in what was a game of two halves for TRFC.

Caprice said: “I think in the first-half, we were much the better team which is the most frustrating thing coming off at full-time after losing 4-1 and it is something that we need to look at.

“I felt in the first-half, we moved the ball very well and looked the better team, so it is frustrating that we didn’t get anything out of the game.

“We looked dangerous down the sides and our two centre forwards looked like they could get in every time, but like I said, it is frustrating as a whole as I don’t think the scoreline reflected the full match.

“Teams like Ipswich are clinical, and they will take their chances so it is something we need to look at, and we will go over in the week and see where we have to improve.

“The higher up you go, the more clinical teams are, and we need to get back to keeping clean sheets and we know what we are good at.”

Caprice returned to Rovers’ starting line-up for the first time this term, and he is pleased to be back.

He added: “It is just good to be back out there to be honest, I’ve been out there for a while and I always want to try and help the team.

“It was always going to be tough, especially coming up against Ipswich, but I gave it my all and just want to help the team.”
