Lewis: We are relishing this weekend’s challenge at Exeter

10 December 2020

Tranmere Rovers midfielder Paul Lewis admits the squad are relishing the challenge against Exeter City this weekend.

Keith Hill’s men head into this weekend’s game following their 2-1 win against Manchester City U21s in the Papa John’s Trophy, and the focus is two wins in five days with three points in the league against Grecians.

And Lewis, 25, who has started the last three matches for Rovers, is anticipating a difficult game once again on Saturday in Devon.

Lewis said: “I’ve played against them a few times, and it will be tough. I know the way they are set up with their system to be difficult to play against, they are very physical and are high up in the table, so we know going down there is going to be a tough test.

“They have got a set way of playing that they have had for a few years now, and when you go there, you know if you’re not at it you can get turned over, so they are a good team.

“They are a very attacking side and I know a few of the lads who are there, I’ve played against them a few times. They have got goals in them and we have to be careful. 

“But we know that on our day, we have a very strong squad, and we have a good team.”

Lewis believes that Tranmere must be consistent in their results as the campaign heads towards its halfway mark, with the festive schedule of fixtures set to commence.

He added: “We just need to be consistent in winning games and picking up points when you are not at your best, and that is massive in this league to get a point or three points which will keep us ticking over.

“It is a long season, with 46 league games and cup games as well, so that strength in depth that we have bodes well.

“The games are coming thick and fast, and Saturday is no different.”
