McCullough: This month is massive

5 March 2020

Tranmere Rovers midfielder Luke McCullough feels that the squad is confident in their bid for Sky Bet League One survival.

Micky Mellon’s men visit the Wham Stadium to play Accrington Stanley on Saturday afternoon, currently seven points from safety with two games in hand.

And the 26-year-old believes that Rovers can climb up the division in the closing weeks of the campaign to ensure third-tier football next term.

McCullough said: “I think we’re feeling confident. Obviously, we won our last game, which was a while ago, but we want to try and build on that, keep picking up as many points as we can and see what happens.

“We have to prepare the best way we can and do things properly.

“This month is massive. We want to try and pick up as many points as we can and hopefully by the end of this month, things will look a little bit better in the table, and that’s what we are trying to do.

“League One is definitely a lot tougher, when you give away chances like we have, you get punished which is the biggest difference in League Two. In both boxes, teams don’t give away as many chances and they take them.”

McCullough has become a regular since he re-signed in the January transfer window having recovered from a serious knee injury, and he has featured on six occasions in a Rovers shirt.

He added: “I went from not even being signed to straight back in the team within the space of a week, so it’s happened quickly, and I think that is the best, just to get straight back into it.

“I’ve got a few games under my belt now and I’m just hoping to get fitter and fitter and hoping to help the team as I can.”
