Tranmere Rovers captain Scott Davies wants to bounce back when Mike Jackson’s side travel to Cambridge United on Saturday searching for a first win of the season.
Rovers make the journey to the Abbey Stadium this weekend to contest a Sky Bet League Two clash against the table-topping U’s – with Mark Bonner’s men having won both of their fixtures in the fourth tier so far.
And following last weekend’s home loss against Cheltenham Town, goalkeeper Davies believes that Rovers are well prepared for the game in Cambridgeshire.
Davies said: “When you lose games, you want to play as soon as possible. Ideally, we would have liked a game straight away, but it has given us the chance to work on the training field, so we’ll go down there prepared to go and get a result.
“It would be very easy for us to get caught up in the defeat so early in the season. We are not happy with the manner in which we went 3-0 down at half-time, but I’ve been in this game a long time and a result in the second game of the season isn’t going to define where you finish come the end of the season.
“There are a hell of a lot of points to play for and a hell of a lot of games of football left, so it is about learning the lessons from last week and putting the work in, and come Saturday, hopefully we’ll get the result.
“If you put the work in and the effort is there, you will have more positive results than negative.
“Going forward it is just about making sure that we are together and listening to the coaches and messages to where we need to improve.
“It is a new group but there’s new groups up and down the country. The manager has made it clear how he wants us to play, and it is down to us as players to go over that white line on Saturday and deliver.
“Last Saturday, we didn’t but we have put the work in, we’ve learned from our mistakes and we’re ready to go this week.”
Rovers will compete behind closed doors and without the SWA cheering the lads on, and Davies says the team are professional and are focused on bringing the team points back to Prenton Park for the TRFCsupporters!
He added: “The current times are strange. It’s hard for everybody, it’s disappointing not to have crowds and it makes an impact on people not having crowds, but hopefully it won’t be for too much longer, but we are professionals and it is the same for everybody, you just have to get on with it.”
