Woodyard reflects on Rovers debut

12 January 2020

Tranmere Rovers midfielder Alex Woodyard feels Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Southend at Roots Hall was “a good point.”

Woodyard, 26, made his debut for Rovers after signing on loan from Peterborough United until the end of the season, in the stalemate at Roots Hall.

He believes that Micky Mellon’s men are moving in the right direction and kick on during the rest of the Sky Bet League One campaign following on from the point in Essex.

Speaking to the local media after full-time, Woodyard gave his thoughts on the fixture against Sol Campbell’s Shrimpers.

Woodyard said: “All in all, it was a good point and it was a good clean sheet.

“We had some good chances, and on another day when your luck is going for you, they go in. But it wasn’t to be.

“We can take the positives and at the end of the day, it’s a clean sheet and we’ll take that.

“These games down the bottom are very important and it’s important that you don’t lose them. Southend is a tough place to come and we’ll take the positives and build on it and go again.

“Clean sheets are always a positive thing and you have to build on it, and you can right up that table.

“We can build on today and get a few wins under our belt and go from there.”
