Vaughan: League goals will soon arrive

2 October 2020

James Vaughan is confident that Tranmere will soon witness an upturn in league results, as a result of sufficient chances being created in the final third. 

The 32-year-old has scored three goals in all competitions this campaign, matching his tally of last season during his brief loan spell at the Club.  

Now hoping to find form in front of goal in Sky Bet League Two, Vaughan is backing the ability of the team to provide the service he’s required. 

He said: “Forwards are judged by the goals they score, ultimately. We haven’t got them this season so far, but the chances are there. If we keep getting in the positions, we will start scoring the goals. 

“When you’re not getting the chances, that’s when you worry. Last week, we had plenty of chances and I thought we were unlucky not to get the win. I’ll keep getting in there and so will the other forwards. 

“I’ve been in the game long enough to know that you will go through spells of scoring and without scoring. I know what I’m about, what the rest of the lads are about, and we will keep at it and do what we need to do.” 

Having already proved his goalscoring ability in Sky Bet League One for the Whites, Vaughan is hopeful that his goals can help carry the team back to the third tier. 

Scunthorpe United are the latest opponents that Tranmere must overcome, as the team search for the first three points of their promotion quest. 

“We all believe we should be in League One and we’re going to be giving everything we can to make sure that we go back to where, we believe, we should be. The squad of players we’ve got should definitely be challenging for it,” said the Birmingham-born striker. 

“For those of us that were here last year, we feel as though we would have stayed up if given the chance. On one side, you’ve got to put it behind us and move on but, on the other side, you’ve got to remember it and have that fuel you for the season ahead.”
