Liam Feeney believes positives can be drawn from Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Cheltenham Town as he reflected on his Tranmere Rovers debut.
The midfielder replaced Mark Ellis during the first-half at Prenton Park, marking his first start for the Club in the process.
Although left disappointed by the outcome of Saturday afternoon, Feeney was pleased to have represented Rovers and is now fully focused on next weekend’s trip to Cambridge United.
He said: “The result was disappointing for everyone. It didn’t go to plan. We didn’t start the game as we hoped to, but I think we did definitely improve. I’m glad I managed to get out there and show a little bit of what I’m about. It wasn’t to be today, but there were some positives to see out there that we can take into a good week of training.”
On being deployed as a substitute and how he aimed to impact the result, Feeney added: “You’re watching the game to see if there are problems, how you may be able to rectify it and where the other team may be vulnerable. If I was called upon, I was looking at where I may be able to have an effect on the game.
“I’ve been at enough clubs where I’ve been in that situation and you’ve got to be ready straight away, if the manager is bringing you in. He’s got faith in you and you’ve got to be eager to go on and repay that faith. It was enjoyable to get on, even in difficult circumstances, and I’m looking to build on that performance and hopefully help us turn those results into wins.”
