Feeney reflects on victory against Oldham

1 December 2020

Liam Feeney heaped praise on teammate James Vaughan whose solitary strike helped Tranmere to a fifth consecutive league win on Tuesday evening. 

Connecting with Feeney's cross from the left flank into the penalty area, Rovers’ No. 9 rose highest inside the box to score the game’s only goal at Oldham Athletic. 

Vaughan has now struck five times in his previous four Sky Bet League Two outings and has developed a strong understanding with the Blackpool loanee this campaign. 

“He attacks it so well and I know that if I put it in the right area, he’s probably going to get a header on goal. I try to do that as much as I can. He’s on fire at the moment and is such a big part of what we’re doing. I’m glad I could help him get a goal,” stated Feeney on providing another assist for Tranmere's top-scorer.

“It’s a massive three points. We knew we’d been on a good run, but I thought we showed a different side to ourselves. Games aren’t always going to go as we want them to, especially away from home. 

“We went a goal up and managed the game well from there. We looked dangerous on the counter and we’re happy with the points.”  

Feeney made way late in the second-half for substitute Otis Khan as Tranmere took advantage of their strength in depth to secure three points at Boundary Park.

The 34-year-old had few complaints regarding this decision as he explained the benefits the Whites are experiencing as a result of providing healthy competition for places among players. 

“Especially in recent weeks, the subs have really come on and finished the job off,” said Feeney. "Kaiyne [Woolery] came on and won the game for us the other day and we’re not weakening ourselves when the gaffer is making subs. The squad is really strong, everyone is fighting for their place and it can only stand us in good stead heading into the number of games we have over the rest of the season.  

“It helps push the boys: if you drop off in standards, there is someone waiting to take your place. We’re all in it together, we’re all pushing each other and hopefully we can keep kicking on every week.”
